How are homeopathic medicines presented?
Many homeopathic medicines are presented as specialties in packaging similar to conventional over-the-counter medications. Specialties are very convenient–their indications and directions for use are very clear and specific to a condition. They are available in a variety of dosage forms such as tablets, gels, ointments and creams, syrups, eye drops, and suppositories. If you are not yet familiar with homeopathic medicines, specialties are a great way to discover their benefits.
Specialties like Arnicare Gel or Calendula Lotion contain one active ingredient, while most specialties combine several active ingredients within the same product. Another very common presentation for homeopathic medicines is the multi-dose tube. This presentation is usually used for medicines containing only one active ingredient.
When should I choose a single medicine?
In some instances, symptoms are so specific that it is easy to select one single medicine. Many self-medication books are available to help you in your selection. One of the most popular is “The Family Guide to Homeopathy” by Dr. Alain Horvilleur. Boiron offers 80 of the most commonly used single medicines, packaged in our signature “Blue Tubes” in select health food stores and pharmacies. These stores may also special-order the hundreds of other single medicines also stocked by Boiron.
