Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Spigelon, therapeutic possibilities result for the treatment of headaches of various kinds and causations, especially those having a neuralgic basis such as cervical migraine, occipital and frontal neuralgia (trigeminal neuralgia), constitutional headache, e.g. after mental overstrain, without an anatomical or pathopsychological basis: as adjuvant, in addition to specific, precisely directed biotherapeutical measures, for headaches in the course of fever, influenza, tonsillitis etc., as well as after abuse of alcohol and (pre)menstrually.
The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the clinical picture and the stage of the illness: In conditions of acute pain, massive initial-dose therapy on several occasions, 1 tablet or 10 drops every 15 minutes, otherwise 1 tablet, dissolved on the tongue, or 10 drops 3 times daily. 1 ampoule daily in conditions of acute pain, otherwise 1 ampoule i.m., s.c., intradermal (neurally, segmentally), i.v. once to 3 times weekly. Spigelon can be taken at any age. The preparation does not affect safety on the road. An alternating prescription and mixing with other preparations is advantageous in many cases. In headache of cervical causation, posture correction should always be pointed out.
