      Brahmi tone can be used as supplement during menopause. It can help in reducing symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings and hot flashes.

  2. Jane says

    Can I take Brahmin Tone with my anti anxiety drug sertraline?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Hey Jane,
      Interactions between brahmi tone and sertraline are unknown.

      However, it contains ginkgo biloba, which might raise the levels of serotonin in the brain to a dangerous level when taken with sertraline, so it might cause serotonin syndrome.

      We suggest not taking brahmi tone with any anti-depressant or anti-anxiety drugs.

      Additionally, I can suggest some natural measure for combating anxiety.

      1. Meditate just before going to sleep for at least 30 minutes. Initially, you will feel difficulty in sitting and might your mind wandering, but after a few days, you will get good control over mind.
      2. Initially, meditate using technique ANAPANASATI YOGA then after three months, try VIPASSANA meditation. Please search about these meditation techniques on Google.
      3. Shavasana (corpse pose) in yoga is also beneficial.
      4. Pranayama (breathing exercises) are also helpful.

      I hope these tips will help you combatting anxiety in better way.

    I’m feeling mild pain in left side of head, dizziness, lightheaded, weakness, laziness after taking brahmi powder. I’m taking brahmi powder from last 7 days. I’m taking two 1/6 teaspoon of brahmi twice a day to cure ADHD. How can I reduce these side effects?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Bacopa Monnieri causes these side effects. You have three options.

      1. Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi) may not be suitable for your body or body type. Therefore, you should not take it. The best alternatives are Centella asiatica (gotu kola) and convolvulus pluricaulis (shankhpushpi).

      2. Ustukhuddus (Lavandula Stoechas) leaves and flowers can help reducing side effects of Brahmi. Other Unani formulations such as itrifal ustukhuddus and ustukhuddus sharbat can also help.

      3. Licorice powder and Amla (Indian Gooseberry) powder can also reduce side effects of Bacopa Monnieri (Brahmi).

  5. Subhash Andey says
