    I would like to know if you can take Gelsemium long term for migranes. 30C a day. Is there any long term affects of this.

      Mike from what I understand about homeopathy you can take the remedy in the dosage you have (30C) until the headaches are no longer a problem and then you may discontinue taking it. Only resume if the headache resumes. For example, on three different occasions I woke with a terrible flu headache and took the 200C potency of Gelsemium with a 3c potency of Arsenicum Alb. After 2 dosages I no longer had the headache.
