My son (27) seems to be suffering from problem of over-medication of lycopodium. He was given lycopodium, which I am convinced, was the correct remedy. It was working fine and he was improving. Lyco 10M was repeated about 5/6 times at interval of 2 to 3 months. Thereafter one of the homeopaths adviced that he should take LM0/6 potency. He was asked to take dry dose of 5/6 pills of LM0/6 every day, which he did take for 1 month, one year back. The symptoms present worsened and those which had cured, returned again. Thereafter he tried to antidote with camphor 30. It did not work. Then he tried lyco 6c. There was slight improvement but again it was statusQuo. He tried Nux 30. there was again some improvement, but again statusQuo. Now even the lowest potencies aggravate the symptoms. The over-madication has not produced any new symptoms, but it has made him overly sensitive to lycopodium remedy. What should he do?
Hello. and sorry to hear about your son’s problem. There are other remedies that can be used to antidote lycopodium, such as Pulsatilla and Causticum. However, I do not have enough information on the case to advise the best way forward. In some cases, when you have such a response to a remedy, this may be because there is “an obstacle to cure”, something in the case that prevents your son to self-heal. This could be nutrition, drug toxicity or the need for a new remedy. My suggestion would be to see our homeopath again and ask him for a clear explanation and a plan.
