For both children and adults, a dose is one tablet or drop or two pilules or enough granules to cover the base of the container lid or the nail of the little finger. Powders are normally dispensed in individual doses. However – quite unlike orthodox medicines – in fact it is the potency of the remedy (the number which is shown after its name) and the frequency with which it is taken that determine the strength of its action; the amount taken at each dose is not critical.

Some remedies are sold in clicker packs, which make it easy to drop pilules straight into the mouth. Otherwise, you may need to tip the dose into the lid of the remedy bottle or the palm of your hand first. Drop the remedy directly onto or underneath your tongue without otherwise touching the mouth. Then just let it dissolve – don’t swallow it straight away – so it can be absorbed by the mucous membranes in the mouth. Solutions are supplied in dropper bottles so one or two drops can easily be put directly on the tongue, without touching the mouth. The dropper should be sterilised between uses.

Remedies are best taken in between meals, at least half an hour after eating when your mouth doesn’t taste of anything else, such as food, drink, tobacco, toothpaste etc. After taking a remedy, try to allow at least 15 minutes before putting anything else in your mouth so they can be fully utilized by the body. In emergencies, try to make sure the mouth is at least rinsed before giving a remedy.
