Several drugs are effectively used in different patients depending on their totality of symptoms and particularly taking into consideration some “repertorial guiding symptoms” [4-6] (Table 1); the most commonly used drugs are Apis mellifica, Belladonna, Lachesis, Arsenicum alb, Thuja etc.  (Table 1), of which Apis mel patients have typical symptoms as mentioned in Allen  and Boreicke  which can clearly distinguish them from that of the other drugs.
