Ans: Traditionally, homeopathic medicines have been used in pellet format i.e. round spheroid shaped globules made of sugar or lactose, where as tablets are flat-round shaped made of lactose.

Q. In what potency or drug strength are homeopathic medicines commonly sold?
Ans: Homeopathic potencies are commonly represented on two types of scales X (decimal scale) or C (centesimal scale). Either of the scales do not generally modify the efficacy of a medicine, however the drug keeps getting stronger as we go up on the scale. Therefore for beginners its advisable to start any medicine from 30C and if it doesn’t help then one can go upto 200C also. But 1000C, 10M, CM etc should be used only under professional care.
