Side Effects

There are no side effects reported with Dashamoola Jeerakam.


When we use Dashmularishta alone, it has some contraindications like mouth ulcer, burning sensation, heartburn, excessive thirst and diarrhea with a burning sensation. But in Dashamoola Jeerakam, Dashmularishta is combined with Jeerakarishtam, which balances its effects and prevents all these unwanted effects. Therefore, Dashamoola Jeerakam has no known contraindications theoretically. However, it requires further research study to confirm this statement. Still, it is advisable if a patient is suffering from these symptoms, then Jeerakarishtam alone should be a better option than Dashamoola Jeerakam and Dashmularishta.
