Arnica Montanamay be used to decrease the amount of your bruising. The length of time it will last may also be less. The medicine comes in a number of different forms including a gel, liquid, and pill. Please buy the pill form only. It also comes in many strengths. Dosing is as follows:
- Take the 30x form four times a day until all bruising resolves. If the pill comes in a 6x or 15x form, take the proper number of pills to reach 30x.
- If the 6x, 15x or 30x forms are not available, but other pill forms are, follow the directions on the label.
- Begin taking this medicine 3 days after surgery and not before. If you have any questions about this please call the ENTClinic at (608) 263-6190.
