How are homeopathic medicines presented?
Many homeopathic medicines are presented as specialties in packaging like other over-the-counter drugs you're familliar with.
Specialties are very convenient as their indications and directions for use are very clear and specific to a condition. They are available in a variety of dosage forms such as tablets, gels, ointments and creams, syrups, eye drops, and suppositories.
If you are not yet familiar with homeopathic medicines, specialties are a great way to discover their benefits.
Specialties, like Arnicare Gel or Calendula Lotion, may contain one single medicine although most of the time they combine several active ingredients within the same product. Another very common presentation for homeopathic medicines is the multi-dose tube. This presentation is usually used for medicines containing only one active ingredient.
When should I choose a single medicine?
In some instances, symptoms are so specific that it is easy to select one single medicine. Many self-medication books are available to help you in your selection. One of the most popular is the Family Guide by Dr. Alain Horvilleur. Boiron offers more than 80 of the most commonly used single medicines, packaged in our signature "multi-dose tubes" to select health food stores and pharmacies. These stores may also special-order other single medicines from the 800 stocked by Boiron.
How can I get more familiar with homeopathic medicines?

This product really helps my dry eye problems. I use a few drops in my eyes at bedtime and might only have to use it once more that night. The brand I used to use had to be used several times a night. I would give this a 5 but the packing is a horrible waste the box way bigger than necessary for the content AND the individual vials just litter the planet.
Not impressed. This product didn't relieve my red, irritated eyes but still provided some moisturizing relief. I'm going to try another brand.
I have dry eye extremely bad. These drops are great. I wish they had the drops in bottle form.
