I am currently using the 6C strength of bryonia alba supplied by a company called Energique. I mix it with equal parts of other homeopathic herbal preparations to treat joint pain associated with Avascular osteonecrosis. I spray two to three sprays under my tongue BID, PRN. I only know that several months ago I was using tylenol#4, 3-6 tabs a day, now just the spray and an occaissional extra strength tylenol or two relieve very severe, degenerative bone/joint pain. I am on coumadin, colchicine, allopurinol and water pills too. My renal function has not declined and I have experienced no GI disturbances as noted earlier in this article. I cannot say that it would be helpful or harmful to anyone else; do remember that I am using a very small amount, and in a very dilute form. I just know for me, it has been helpful.

I had an inner ear infection and developed Vertigo. Have used Bryonia many times in past and it worked well. This time however, the Vertigo did not go away so I kept taking it. I developed stomach aches, sore legs, excitability, high BP and general malaise. Dare I say is was my own fault for not following the doctors recommendation. But I figured it was a remedy and could not hurt you. When I consulted WebMD I found out just the opposite. I have stopped today after a month on the remedy and am starting to slowly feel better, although I still have the Vertigo. I was taking the 6C Bioran pellets.

I have taken this medication a couple times for when I have had a serious respiratory infection that caused excessive coughing. The coughing was so violent at times that it sometimes set off my gag reflex, causing me to vomit. Phenergan w/ codeine in cough syrup form did wonders for my cough. I was finally able to sleep through the night without keeping myself and my spouse up. I never felt compelled to use this drug at other times, although i can see why someone would. It does cause drowsiness and makes you a little loopy. All in all I'm very happy with this medication. I have chronic bronchitis that flares up in the winter and accompanies a common cold, so knowing that this drug is out there and works so effectively makes me feel better.

I am using this product because I developed vertigo and somebody told me about Bryonia and how that helped vs. Meclazine that makes me very tired up to 42 hrs. I took Bryonia for 1 week 5 little pills every 3 hrs and felt great.. after a week I was feeling again the vertigo symptoms and started again.. is that bad?

Have been on this medication for U.R.I..Many many times..On & off..Coughing all day & night. Finally by night I can get some rest. Not only does it suppress my cough, it also brings up the phlem.

I used this for a sore throat and post nasal drip cough and found that this is the only stuff that actually worked for me. I use this only at night due to the fact that this makes me EXTREMELY sleepy...

This medication is definitely a keeper. Provided that you don't have any nausea when takinhg it, it works to calm an upset stomach. It also works pretty well for sllergies & sinus congestion.

I have asthma and periodically get bronchitis. Like others reported, coughing to point of gagging/vomiting. This is the ONLY cough medicine that works for me to stop the cough so I can finally sleep. I have used this since I was a kid (50 yrs ago!) and am thankful they keep making this medicine.

I have used this product twice,once allergies, once respiratory ailment. It works. It did not make me sleepy but i could sleep. I am seriously sick again, tried all the over counter brands, nothing works like this product. Do not mix alcohol with it. Get your work done, go to bed.

This used to work well for me 35 or 40 years ago. I took some after 3 24 hr periods of no sleep due to racking cough that would not quit. It quieted the cough but I had severe stomach cramps 25 mins after taking. Threw up. Feeling better but cannot take this.

URI I did not notice much relief at all taking this medication. I was coughing so hard I was vomiting. I would take every 8 hours as directed and still no relief.
