Echinacea compositum forte S: Hypersensitivity to one of the active ingredients, or to botanicals of the Compositae family.
In isolated cases, hypersensitivity reactions may occur. In rare cases, increased flow of saliva may occur after taking this medication. If this happens, the therapist should be consulted.
Interactions with other medication:
For the general stimulation of the defensive system: 1 ampoule i.m., s.c., i.d., or, if necessary, i.v., should be administered, 1-3 times weekly. The intramuscular or intravenous injection and dose must be adapted to the individual case and the reaction of the patient. If a rapid and pronounced reaction is sought, Echinacea compositum forte S should be given. If a milder reaction is sought in the case of patients who are already feverish, Echinacea compositum S should be given.

By means of homoeopathic remedies, the action of which is directed specifically at reaction phases and septic clinical pictures, also in viral diseases, a broad antihomotoxic reversal effect is achieved in the most varied reaction phases, also with the aid of nosodes and trace elements, particularly when, in regressive vicariation, serious inflammation occurs; in such cases Traumeel S, Engystol N and Hepar compositum (stimulation of the detoxicating hepatic function) may be administered as alternating injections. In feverish reaction phases, in general the usual form of Echinacea compositum S is administered. However, serious toxin levels with sepsis, chronic infections, primary chronic polyarthritis, and in particular precancerous dermatosis and neoplasia, so long as they can still be treated, require a considerable strengthening of the Echinacea components. In these cases, therefore, Echinacea compositum forte S is administered.
In the cellular phases there is frequently a blockage of the defensive system. In addition, because of the disturbance of the fermentative detoxication mechanisms, there is a continual attack by intermediary homotoxins which, for their part, are responsible for secondary syndromes and symptoms of toxic origin. In this case, massive initial-dose therapy (Spitzy) with stimulating drugs is necessary, especially in degeneration and neoplasm phases.
In order to stimulate the defensive system fundamentally and at the same time reopen the valvular functions which may have been obstructed, it is beneficial to administer increasing doses according to the following plan:
On the 1st day: 1/2 ampoule Echinacea compositum forte S i.v.; on the 2nd day: 1 ampoule Echinacea compositum forte S i.v.; on the 3rd day: 1 ampoule Echinacea compositum forte S i.v.; on the 4th day: 2 ampoules Echinacea compositum forte S i.v.; on the 5th day: 2 ampoules Echinacea compositum forte S;
on the 6th and 7th days the treatment should be omitted.
Then possibly only every second day one i.v. injection should be administered; later, only once weekly.
If the fever occurring after the usual intravenous injection of Echinacea compositum forte S has not subsided by the following midday, a day free from medicaments is inserted as early as after the first i.v. injection, in order to allow the defensive system time to react. Further, it can then be ascertained whether the therapeutic fever which may occur is to be regarded merely as a transitory intermediate reaction or whether a general feverish detoxicating reaction on a broad basis has been provoked, as the inflammation is a major, biologically important and, in the case of serious toxication, irreplaceable detoxication reaction. In this way (in the form of regressive vicariation: Reckeweg), even degenerative phases and possibly even neoplasia in reaction phases can be reversed and influenced favourably or even cured.
It is certainly not necessary for favourable regressive vicariations to manifest themselves exclusively as a fever.
In the case of a persistent fever continuing for weeks, in addition to Echinacea compositum forte S, 1 ampoule i.v. every 2-3 days, also interpolated injections of Engystol N and Traumeel S and possibly of Gripp-Heel are beneficial. In addition,
detoxication of the liver by Hepeel, etc., and elimination through the gastro-intestinal canal can be stimulated with Momordica compositum, Anacardium-Homaccord, Mucosa compositum, Nux vomica-Homaccord, etc.
