Apisinum: Intensifies the effect of Apis mellifica. The indications are similar.
Arsenicum album: Remedy with specific action in right-sided renal disorders and renal colic; pains are burning in nature, but relieved by heat; right-sided ovarian pain; tremendous anxiety and restlessness; right-sided inflammatory conditions of the female pelvic organs.
Bryonia: Appendicitis: patient lies on the right, worse from any motion, from deep inspiration, better by cold applications; non-specific inflammation
