Our 17 year autistic son is going through a tough phase and the remedy grid suggested Tarentula Hispanica -but we are not sure what potency to buy and what dosage will work and for how many days.
  ajavm on 2011-10-10
This is an internet forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take three doses of Tarentula Hispanica 200 as follows and report back after 15 days (only 3 doses in 15 days).

day 1 morning
1st dose

day 1 evening
2nd dose

day 2 morning
3rd dose

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thanks for the response. That was very helpful.
In the past my son has been very sensitive to higher potencies, like 200.Symptoms would flare up beyond control. Will a 6 or 30 work too? Also he has the habit of chewing up the pills immediately-so a drops will be a better option.
Please advise.
With many Thanks.

Yes, you may start at a lower potency. Please provide all symptoms of your child in details, also the remedies given to him, how the remedies affected him etc.
Many people visit this forum for autism if people provide all details it may also help others.

Best Regards.

Thanks for the response.
When using a lower potency like 30 or 12 or 6-what would the dosage be?and for how many days?
WE tried remedies for my son about 3 years back. So right now I do not remember each remedy.A brief view of his profile-He has the usual issues, related to autism-speech is minimal,used mainly when he wants something.He was always hyper with loud vocals,but happy.His sense of hearing and vision seemed hyper. Turned 11,12 started getting angry and gradually aggressive,hitting or pushing us and throwing things and self injurious-mainly head banging on the floor or wall occasionally biting himself. He has many characteristics of OCD. We went to a classical homeopath and tried several remedies and nothing really helped.Finally,when it became impossible for us to handle him and he was totally miserable we went for allopathic medications It took us 6 months to find one anti psychotic drug that helped him calm down and function.His OCD behaviors were there but redirectable. But it resulted in bad side effects such as high sugar,weight gain and breast growth. [This was the reason we did not take the allopathic route for all these years.] So now we are tapering the medication and certain problems like anger,self injury etc are coming back. He has mood swings and he seemed very depressed. The remedy grid suggested Tarentula Hispanica when I looked under Depression as the main symptom.
Well he is a mess right now and we are at our wits end trying to help him.He cannot express anything to let us know what is happening within.Otherwise he is intelligent,understands everything,loves music and can play any tune on the piano by ear. But he has attention span issues,impatient cannot focus for long.He gets very frustrated when he gets stuck in some of his compulsions. Since there so many interconnected complications I thought of dealing them as symptom of depression and see if it helps.
Please let me know any of your thoughts.

nux vomica antidotes ill effects of western medicines. It also works well for angry people. Please give him nux vomica 6 for three days and report back.

One dose means 2 pills or 1 drop in some 20 ml water.

I will buy Nux Vom 6c today and give it to him.
But is it okay since he is still on the Allopathic medicines? Just tapering down to a lower dose itself has created a crisis.
Meanwhile I started him on SBL Tranquil homeopathic tabs 3 days back.
please let me know.
Greatly appreciate your help.

It is ok to give nux alongwith the allopathic medication.
Please don't give him sbl tranquil.
kadwa 7 years ago

I will give him NUx Vom 6 c only and stop Tranquil tabs.
But strangely he was responding to them it seemed.
Greatly appreciate your help.

The following remedies are there in tranquil, please try to see which one seems to be working..
Aconite and Belladonna should give symptomatic relief.

Abrus precatorius

Aconitum napellus

Atropa belladona

Calendula officinalis

Chelidonium majus

Viburnum opulus

Kali phosphoricum

Zincum picricum

Are you familiar with homeopathic materia medica?
kadwa 7 years ago

I am somewhat familiar with Homeopathic remedies.
Out of the remedies listed in Tranquil, Belladona and Kali Phos have helped to a certain extent.
Kali phos helped him with sleep issues.This was when he was about 7-8 years old.
Belladona, given a few years back helped his impulsive anger for sometime.
Another remedy is Tub 1m which solved constipation problems.This was also given when he was about 7yrs old.Back then a homeopathic doctor had put him on a regimen- right now i do not remember all the remedies.
For the past 6 yrs my son suffers from seasonal allergies and manifests as severe cough.Till today we have not been able to pinpoint to a cause, He does not cooperate for blood work.There is no cold or chest congestion.He will cough all the time. If he catches a cold he will start wheezing sometimes.
This year the cough was extremely bad-it last for about 4 months and frustrated I looked up on this website. The suggested remedy was Rumex Crispus and I gave him 30 potency for a month and since then he has not coughed !! I hope that remedy will have a long lasting effect.
Bofore that I had to put him constantly on anti-histhamines
Hope all this information will give you an idea of his constitution.
once again greatly appreciating your guidance.

Whether you had tried Belladonna for his cough. Rumex is antidoted by ..

Belladonna, Hyos and Lachesis are agitated.
Conium and Phosphorus have fears.
Camphor is a universal antidote.
All these remedies have profound effect on cough.
Dr. Prafull Vijaykar says that the remedy relationship table helps a lot to get at the remedy when one has come near the remedy.
kadwa 7 years ago

I do not understand the remedy relationship very well.
Rumex worked well for his cough.
But if I have given any of the antidotes then Rumex effect is nullified? Please explain.
This time of the year he starts coughing-so I am worried.
It is confusing what do to treat-the cough or his anxiety/OCD or his anger, depression or something else that could be the root cause?
maybe there will be one remedy that will be the answer?
Appreciating all your help.
