Management of Abnormal Cravings

Continued use of some drugs and narcotics shorten the effect of homeopathic remedy.


In acute disease it is advisable to yield to the cravings of the patient, but in chronic disease they must not be indulged.

It is to be noted that when a patient has by long continued use become habituated to drugs, such as morphia, tobacco, etc., the homoeopathic remedy will, at times, act in spite of the continued use of the drug; but, of course, the action is short lasting and imperfect.
