This medicine is effective in both cases. However, the Anupaan (adjuvant) role is very important.
It is effective medicine if bradycardia occurs due to any of the following causes:

- Persistent dry cough associated with breathing trouble, restlessness, and exhaustion
- Poor blood supply to heart – due to atherosclerosis, heart failure, cardiomyopathy or heart valve disease
- High-grade fever
Its main action is to strengthen the heart. So, where cardioprotective or strengthening actions are required, it can be used.

- Additionally, Jahar Mohra Pishti and Mukta Pishti can also be taken along with it for maximum benefits.
Its main use is observable in first and second stages of pulmonary tuberculosis. However, its antitubercular actions are not so potent that can help to eradicate the disease. Still, it can inhibit the reproduction and growth of bacteria. Moreover, it is beneficial to restore energy, strength, and weight. It can play an important role as supportive therapy in tuberculosis.
