Many homeopathic medicines are presented as branded medicines and packaged like other over-the-counter medications. Branded medicines are convenient for patients as their directions for use are clear and specific to a particular condition. These medicines are available in a variety of dosage forms, including tablets, gels, ointments, creams, syrups, eye drops and suppositories. Some branded medicines, like Arnicare® Gel or Calendula Lotion, may contain a single active ingredient, although most combine several active ingredients in the same product.
Other common presentations for homeopathic medicines are the multi-dose tube and the unit-dose tube. Available in quick-dissolving pellets, these medicines contain a single active ingredient.
