Follow these instructions on how to take remedies
Put one pill on or under the tongue. Do not eat or drink 15 minutes either side. Let the pill dissolve. No one but the patient taking the remedy should touch it.
Take the remedy three times for the first day. Ideally every 2 to 4 hours. If the symptoms are strong you may need to repeat more frequently. If after three doses there is no change or symptoms continue to get worse, change the remedy. Once there is an improvement, increase the length of the intervals between doses until you no longer need to use that remedy.
Start with 30c and if it stops working or symptoms are strong use 200c.
