Why should you order homeopathic medicines from TxOptions?
Diverse choices, more than a century of experience, 24-hour emergency call service, plus quality, reliability, resources, value and dedication to service.
Understanding your choices (dosage forms, potencies and sizes).
TxOptions offers a comprehensive array of over 1,000 unique single remedies in a variety of potencies, bottle and vial sizes, in various dosage forms (liquids, pellet sizes, tablets and mother tinctures) which total over 100,000 products. We supply singles from Standard Homeopathic Company, Hyland’s, and Luyties.
Navigating the Singles Section
A single remedy can be found in two main ways, either from the “Find it here…” search box at the top of every page, or by clicking on “Shop” and “Single Remedies” to get to the singles ordering page.
When you use the search box at the top of every page that says “Find it here…”, you can type the name of the remedy you wish to locate. Usually several options will appear. Click on the icon of your choice to enter the Product Description page for that remedy. The listing without potencies gives you the most options, e.g., Aconitum rather than Aconitum nap 30C. From there you can select a format or potency at the top of the list or scroll down the list to find what you need. This method of searching allows you to go directly to what you need (and will also provide related products that contain that single remedy).
When you press “Shop” and “Single Remedies” and enter the general Singles Remedies section, you will see a search box where you can enter a letter to get to the remedies starting with that letter, or enter a few letters of the remedy name to further direct the search. This method of shopping is useful when you want to see what remedies are available in list form. Further selection will be needed to choose the desired potency, brand, price and quantity.
Certain dosage forms are limited in potency and vice versa. You will also find that not all the potencies are listed for each single remedy. If what you are looking for is not listed, please don’t hesitate to call and see if we can special order what you need at 1-800-456-7818.
Dosage Forms - Ingestibles and Topicals
How do you choose between the multiple dosage forms on the market?
Hyland’s signature quick dissolve tablets are easy to take and administer. The pellets take longer to melt but are smaller and available in more remedies and potencies. They are great for travel and kits. Both of these dosage forms benefit from sublingual ingestion, meaning the placement in the mouth or ideally under the tongue, for it to melt there and be absorbed into the bloodstream. It is said that by going directly into the bloodstream and avoiding the digestive system, the medicine can act faster. Caplets are designed to be swallowed and thereby go through the digestive system. It is a matter of personal preference.
Sprays penetrate the quickest, followed by gels, creams and then ointments. If you have a hard to reach or very sensitive area to treat, the spray may be your best bet. If you want to put something on overnight that will be absorbed slowly over a long period of time, you may prefer using a cream or an ointment. Again, it’s mostly a matter of personal preference.
Dosage Forms - Pellets, Soft Tablets and Dilutions
Medicated Pellets are round, 80% (+/- 10%) sucrose, 20% (+/- 10%) lactose pills that have been medicated with a dilution. Our standard pellet size is #35 (the size of a BB pellet). You can special order remedies in #20 (Poppy Seed) and #10 (a grain of sand) sizes.
Soft Tablet Triturates are soft, molded tablets. They dissolve almost instantly when placed in the mouth and contain only the active ingredients in a base of lactose with a small amount of acacia gum to hold them together. These are available in 250 tablet plastic bottles in Hyland’s brand in 6X, 12X and 30X potencies. You can also ask if you can special order others. We also carry 80 single remedies in the 500 tablet amber glass bottles under the Luyties brand.
Dilutions are homeopathic liquid dilutions prepared in a 20% alcohol solution, available in ½ oz, 1 oz, and 2 oz glass bottles. Remedies are available in dilutions starting from 3X and can go as high as LM, however, solubility and Rx status may influence their availability in low potencies.
The potencies we have posted for each remedy can vary. We list the potencies we keep most readily available. If you need a potency that is not listed under the remedy you want, just call us at 1-800-456-7818 and we’ll do our best to get that to you.
Dosage forms can alter the available potencies as well. For example, high potencies are rarely prepared in triturate tablets; solubility of the source determines the form of low potencies (insoluble sources are typically available in only triturate X potency tablets).
X potencies are remedies that are diluted on a 1:10 scale at each potency (1 part remedy and 9 parts diluent at each dilution). 1 part tincture is succussed with 9 parts diluent for a 2X potency. Then 1 part of the 2X is mixed with 9 more parts diluent for a 3X potency. A 3X potency in equation format is 103 = 10,000. This means there is one part of the original substance in 10,000 parts of the dilution. The process carries forward to make potencies from 3X to 200X. The process is a series of alternate de-concentration and succussion (vigorous shaking).
C potencies are made the same way, except they are diluted on a 1:100 scale, beginning with 1 part of the remedy tincture mixed with 99 parts diluent. Actually, 3C = 6X, i.e., 1003 = 106 = 1,000,000 which means there is one part of the original substance in 1,000,000 parts of the dilution.
M potencies are equal to 1000C, i.e., they are made on the same 1:100 ratio repeated a thousand times. We frequently stock 1M, 10M and CM (100M) potencies.
LM/Q potencies are another potency scale (a variation on 1:50,000) that can be special ordered. They are prepared in a multi-step process which makes them limited to soluble sources only.
The most commonly ordered sizes are 2 dram amber glass vials (1/4 oz), 250 tablet plastic bottles and 1 ounce liquid dilutions but our options are more extensive.

Among Standard Homeopathic Company’s 1,000+ unique remedies, some are restricted to medical prescription status on either their low potencies or all potencies (including all non-HPUS monographed remedies). We comply with Rx designations defined in each HPUS single remedy’s monograph. Once we have the documentation to show you are an authorized provider, we will assign your status accordingly in the system. With this status, you can add the Rx remedies to your shopping cart. We also accept prescriptions for individual patients. Prescriptions may be faxed to our dedicated pharmacy (FAX: 1-800-296-8898). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call our customer service team at 1-800-456-7818.
