Homeopathic remedies come in different forms – they may be given as liquid, pills, pilules (small pills), tablets or powder.
We mainly prescribe our remedies in pilules (small pills) or liquid form (drops or spray) and these are taken orally by mouth. If given as a pilule, place in mouth and suck until it dissolves. Just like sucking a lolly! They have a slightly sweet, pleasant taste. The pilule is made from sucrose and is lactose free. For liquid remedies you can place the drops or spray directly into the mouth from the bottle.
How many pilules / drops / sprays do I take?
• 1 dose = 1-2 pilules / 1-2 drops / 1-2 sprays
Dissolve pilule / drop / spray in mouth.
Avoid food, drink (other than water) or teeth brushing at least 10-15 mins before or after taking a remedy.

Do I continue taking the previous remedies prescribed?
