I've had an awful cough for about 6 weeks and it was finally starting to go away until DS brought a cold home drom daycare.  It's now worse than ever.  I'm 8 months pregnant, so my only option is something homeopathic.  I'm on my 3rd dose of Chestal, but haven't noticed it getting any better.  How long will it take before I feel some relief?

if you have the right remedy, within an hour.  sounds like it's not working for you.  you may need something a bit different.

Not until so many weeks have passed that it's impossible to tell whether it just went away on it's own or as a result of the remedy - in my personal experience.

Your cough sounds really bad. Why do you think homeopathy is your only option? What does your HCP say?

I took an arnica-based mix yesterday for my shoulder and it felt better immediately. Like within seconds -- and then more improvement with time. Maybe I'm nuts & it was all psychological, but I don't care because I could finally move again.
