I need some advice. A patient has had Carcinosin 200c and has started experiencing severe palpitations and tightness in her chest. I have advised her to wait for 30 days before the 2nd dose. I’m not sure if it is the correct remedy and I heard of a case where this lasted for months. Should I antidote it and if so how quickly?

No, do not antidote.  Are the symptoms since the remedy more severe than the symptoms before the remedy?  The remedy will only act if it resonates with the patient in some way.  Do not worry about the 200c creating chronic symptoms.  It creates nothing, and will run out of steam in a matter of days or weeks.  Did the patient begin anythiny new like vitamins or supplements?  These types of things can cause these symptoms.

Hi Haleys,

Did the patient have palpitations and tightness in her chest before the remedy? Ie. is this an aggravation of her usual symptoms?  If so, are these symptoms tolerable for her? How often are they occurring and how intense?  You also need to consider her general state of health and her age.  As Lindsey suggested, did the patient take anything else that might have triggered the reaction?  The answer to your question depends on the answers to these questions.

Lastly, the fact that you don’t know the answer to this dilemma suggests that you consider further study before treating deep, chronic problems and using nosodes.

I did not prescribe the Carcinosin.

The presenting complaint is hormonal: poor sleep quality during and after menses resulting in tiredness and headaches. No chest problems or palpitations, no anxiety, health good. Arsenicum (1M, 10M, 200C) had produced limited positive effect and symptoms were much worse on LM3 & 4. Carcinosin was given as an intercurrent.

Initial palpitations lasted 6 days until onset of menses when patient had complete exhaustion and severe debilitating headaches for 13 consecutive days. Second month was the same, with palpitations before plus breast tenderness from day 9 of menstrual cycle (not normal).

Unsure whether to give Arsenicum (not convinced) or try Phosphorus or do nothing.
