I am an Indian but live in Australia and have recently come back from India. While on my India trip, I brought Bio-Combination 21 Tablets for my daughter who is teething and is 1.5 years old. The pharmacist recommended I give her 2 tablets in the morning and 2 at bedtime however, this isn’t helping her at all. I googled and found that the correct dose for this tablet was 2 tablets 4 times a day with an interval of 4 hours. However, I don’t want to rely on google alone. Request you to kindly advise what is the correct dose of biocombination 21 tablets for teething. Also, on the bottle I read the manufactured date which is June 2008 and there is no expiry date. Does this tablet not have any expiry date? If yes, is this still alright to give her? Request you to kindly advise as she is experiencing diarrhoe intermittently when her teeth break through and is really irritable because of teething. Please help.
One. Homeopathy remedies usually do not have an expiry date.
Two. Why do you want to give your daughter this combination? Is erupting teeth a ‘disease’? Did you, your father or your grand parents used this combination to help with your teething?
Teething is a natural process and some pain and discomfort is likely to be associated with it. Homeopathic remedies should only be given when there are specific associated symptoms like fever, diarrhoea, high irritability etc.

hi i am shiv shankar from kanpur. just a few days back i have brought bio combination 21 for my daughter . my docter had advised me to give this medicine to my daughterso that she will not have any problem like loose motion etc when teeth is comming and also this medicine will help in commin teeth uniformly please advise whether it is true or not?
My comment on Dr. Bhatia’s comment:
Giving this medicine is like “pre-emptive strike”; as we always say “precaution is better than cure”.
Why to wait for problem to escalate and then administer the medicines, why not to give the medicines to maintain the good health!!!!
And last but not the least – there is no side effect of this medicine, so no harm even if child doesn’t need it.
Can this medicine be given to six month old?
hi dipti, i think teething starts actually after one year of age, so no need to give early.
Yes you can give her 2 tablets 3 times or 4 times a day as she is old enough to take this quantity.
