  1. Nancy Lee Bertao says

    I read here “Geriforte Tablet contains Makardhwaj (mercury compound), so we do not consider it safe for long-term use. However, Geriforte Tablet contains a minimal amount of Makardhwaj, but we still believe it should not be used for long-term or more than 40 days.” And below I read “I use Geriforte for a year. Can it be harmful? How long can we use Geriforte syrup or tablets?

    Geriforte can be taken on a regular basis for a long-term. It is a food supplement, which can be taken for years without any side effects.”

    Please explain if Geriforte tablets should be taken for up to 40 days or if it can be taken for years, without any side effects.
    Thank you!

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Geriforte Syrup does not contain Makardhwaj. It can be used for the long-term without any issue.

      Geriforte tablet contains around 10 mg Makardhwaj, which is generally most safe dosage for Makardhwaj and can also be used on regular basis for several weeks. However, it should be used under the supervision of an ayurvedic doctor.
      The maximum duration of its use is not specified, but it should be safe if used for 4 to 6 weeks in a dosage of 2 tablets twice daily. Then, 1 tablet twice daily can be continued as per doctor’s recommendation.
