Homeopathic medicines are prepared by process of succession and trituration, not by dilution only. Succession and trituration is much different from dilution.
One should take these medicines, in fact any medicines only under doctor's advice, as every medicines have different mode of action and reaction, time of repetition which should be considered before repeating the medicines unnecessary. Patients are unaware of all these and keep on repeating the medicines unnecessarily and engulfing large doses of medicines which is harmful.

One cannot become the doctor just by knowing the name of medicines, knowledge of other branches are also very important like anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology. Thorough examination and case history is needed before prescribing or repeating the medicines. Patients do the unnecessarily self drugging without knowledge of all these things and then come to doctor with side effects. Therefore, consult your doctor before using any medicines, whether it is Homeopathy, allopathy. And avoid self medication.
