RELATIONS

Complementary : to Bell., which is the acute of Calc. 

Calc. acts best : before, Lyco., Nux., Phos., Sil.

It follows : Nit.Acid., Puls., Sulph., (especially if pupil are dilated); is followed by Kali bi. in nasal catarrh.

According to Hahnemann Calc., must not be used before Nit.ac., and Sulph. may produce unnecessary complications.

In children it may be often repeated. 

In aged people should not be repeated ; especially if the first dose benefited, it will unusually do harm.

AGGRAVATION - Cold air, wet weather, cold water, from washing, morning, during full moon.

AMELORATION - Dry weather, lying on painful side.
