Remarks: In some patients sensitive to drugs, a primary reaction may occur, notwithstanding the high dilution. In such cases the treatment should be interrupted for about 2-3 days. In the meantime the following remedies may be administered:R31 with emaciation and weakness.R4 with diarrhoea.R2 with strong pulse.Also our remedies for the nerves are frequently indicated such as R36 and R33.It is obvious that any treatment with iodized salts or any use of iodine as well as the use of hormones (thyroid glands) should be stopped, as these are liable to cause acute aggravation.
