Every patient has a right to know what he is being prescribed. In some cases, however, it may be to patient’s own interest if the homoeopath withholds the name of the remedy. However, if the patient insists, the homeopath should readily oblige him, informing him of the possible impediments and difficulties caused by unnecessary repetitions or too long ingestion. If a homeopath withholds the name of the remedy, despite a request by the patient, that can be for considerations other than the patient’s well-being. Either the homeopath lacks confidence in what he prescribes or fears the patient would dump him. The homeopath-patient relationship should be one of mutual trust and regard for each other’s responsibilities, obligations and interests.
