Introduction

Often patients accept Allopathic treatment blindly. Despite the increasing health consciousness most of us are too scared to discuss our health problems with any degree of seriousness that they deserve.

During Homoeopathic treatment, it is very essential that one should refrain any Allopathic drugs as it becomes very difficult to assess the improvement and also, Allopathic drugs many a times suppress symptoms temporarily and are miles away from curing. The drugs, which a patient is taking on a long-term basis, should be tapered gradually over a period of weeks to months. Many times due to prolonged ingestion of certain drugs one may develop side effects, which the patient may not be well aware of. Hence, we at Homoeopathic Health Center like to educate the patients who are on long and short-term Allopathic drugs.

The fundamental reason for me to discuss the commonly used allopathic drugs is that even after practicing Homoeopathy for the past twenty two years I still get ninety per cent of patients who have already taken Allopathic drugs for their problems and may still desire to continue some of the drugs at the time of consultation. It becomes an essential duty on my part to separate the symptoms of the disease and the long-term side effects of the drugs. As a timely warning to the patient after recognizing those side effects one can save the patient from permanent complications. Also the symptoms (side effects) of the drugs can easily be removed from the prescriptive totality.

Preface

There was a long felt need to present such book to the J profession. It all started in 1978 when Dr. S.S. Apte, Honorary Physician of Nanavati Hospital used to conduct lectures on Allopathic Pharmacopoeia for Homoeopathic Physicians. The series of lectures were quite successful but unfortunately were discontinued. As far as Homoeopathy is concerned we are still lagging behind modern medicine. Hence, for years to come Homoeopathic practitioners all over the world will have to encounter patients who are already on Allopathic drugs and who are now intending to undergo Homoeopathic treatment . for IHD, Diabetes mellitus, hypertension etc. Now the question arises—what are we going to do in such a situation? Un- fortunately with a heavy heart I write this that academically majority of Homoeopathic Physicians yet prefer not to reduce Allopathic drugs at all, as they feel they are safe. and comfort- able when patient is taking both the types of medicine. These are the Physicians who belong to the Mongrel Sect as called by our master Hahnemann.

Even for a common boil, they prescribe Cifran and Heparsulph. But there is another class of Homoeopaths called ‘True Hahnemannian Followers, who are very sincere and genuine and will at least make an attempt to reduce the Allopathic drugs like antibiotics and steroids and instead try the efficacy of Homoeopathic drugs alone. It is for the benefit of these Homoeopaths that I have written this book, as this will help them to reduce mistakes in their practice. It will also help them in alerting to the common mistakes made during practice due to the lack of knowledge of Allopathic medicines. I hope they will understand how to reduce the Allopathic drugs or stop them depending on the case in hand.

The book describes certain group of medicines as regards their brand name, general information, adverse effects and warning signs.

The book will definitely help Homoeopathic Physicians to understand treatment given by Allopathic Physicians and would alert them with early signs of adverse effects.

This book has also been prepared to keep the patients in- formed about the drugs they have or had been taking.

This book would not have seen the light of the day had Dr. Girish J. Soni not dedicated his precious time even when his wife was pregnant. I sincerely thank his wife Chandra and their little daughter Sachita.

I also thank my students of the first batch of Critical Care Medicine like Farhad, Benaifer, Pinky, Azeez, Renuka, Ronak, Jayesh, Varsha, Ajay, Naini, who constantly encouraged me to write a book like this.
