Dosage Guidelines For Dental Remedies 200c and Under
HOW TO CHOOSE POTENCY:
When the treatment is prescribed on the basis of local signs and symptoms, prescribe low potencies, under 12X.
When the treatment is prescribed on the basis of a mixture of local, general, mental and emotional signs and symptoms, prescribe higher potencies, 30X – 200X.
TIMES REMEDIES SHOULD BE TAKEN:
Low potency remedies (under 12X)
- first aid every 5-30 minutes
- acute conditions every 30 minutes to hourly, decreasing to 3-4 times a day
Medium potency remedies (12X – 30c)
- one to three times a day
High potency remedies (30c – 200c)
- once a day.
**ALWAYS REDUCE FREQUENCY WITH IMPROVEMENT**
The lower the potency, the shorter its duration of action (acute conditions).
The higher the potency, the longer its duration of action (chronic conditions).
