    I am 21 years old and having high blood pressure around 150/110. I have started taking Mukta vati, but having the same problem as dizziness and feeling like I am having fever it’s been only 2 dosage, which I have taken. Please advise should I continue it or do I need to take any other medicine. If any other medicine needs to be taken, please advise the name and it should be ayurvedic.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      This side effects may occur due to presence of Rauwolfia serpentina (sarpagandha). Now, you require to use Mukta Vati with 125 mg Pana Pishti (kushta zamurd). If this problem persists even after taking Mukta Vati with Pana Pishti, then you should discontinue the use of mukta vati. The other helpful option is Hridayarnava Rasa (Baidyanath) with Arjunarishta.

      You should also correct the diet. For this, you should read this article: Diet for High Blood Pressure. Some home remedies can also help. Read: Home remedies for high blood pressure.

    What is the dosage of Mukta Vati for patient with 170/110 blood pressure?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      2 tablets of Mukta Vati twice daily with milk is appropriate dosage for patients with moderate to severe hypertension or stage 2 hypertension.

  7. Sujeet says

    I am 37 year old and suffering from High Blood pressure (180/110). I am currently on Allopathy medicine and my blood pressure is under control ranging from 125/85. I started Divya Mukta Vati after reading the comments here (1 tablets twice daily). My observed that my BP fell down to 110/70 within the first week. I immediately contacted my doctor and he advised to reduce the morning allopathy dose from 40 mg to 20. After reducing, the BP is back to 120/80. I have the following questions for you.

    1) Do I have to increase the dosage to reduce the BP even further or continue with the same Mukta vati dosage?

    2) I am feeling very lethargic and sleepy after taking Mukta Vati, which I am taking with water. Is there a solution to this problem?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      1. 2 tablets of Mukta Vati twice daily with milk is appropriate dosage. If you are taking same, then you should not increase the dosage of Mukta vati. However, in such circumstances, one can also taken Jatamansi churna (500 mg), Ashwagandha churna (1000 mg), and Arjuna Ksheer Pak or Ashwagandha Arjuna Ksheer Pak to stabilize the blood pressure at normal levels.

      2. Mukta Vati causes lethargy and sleepiness due to Sarpagandha. Taking Bacopa Monnieri – Brahmi (500 mg) with water can reduce these effects. Secondly, Mukta Vati should not be taken with water. Warm milk is best adjuvant for Mukta vati to reduce side effects of Sarpagandha in it.

  8. Om Singh says

    Can we take Divya Mukta vati along with allopathic medicine like TELMA40?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      There is no drug interaction reported by people who take Mukta Vati and TELMISARTAN together yet.

      However, we recommend keeping at least 3 hours gap between Mukta Vati and antihypertensive allopathic drugs for precautionary purposes.

  9. Jasmeet says

    Can I try Mukta Vati with water?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Most preferably, we suggest taking Mukta Vati with milk to reduce its side effects. Along with water, it may likely to cause nasal congestion, dry mouth etc. These side effects are minimized when it is taken with milk.

  10. Laxmi J. says

    Could vegan people take the Mukta vati with coconut, sou or almond milks?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Mukta vati also has some side effects like dry mouth, nasal dryness, nasal congestion, difficulty in breathing, etc.

      Cow’s Milk helps prevent and reduce all these symptoms. Coconut milk or coconut water is likely more safe with such preparations and likely to prevent and reduce side effects of Sarpagandha preparations including Mukta Vati.

      Almond milk is not suitable adjuvant for such medicines.

  11. Dayalamurthy says

    A person with high blood pressure of 160/100, after starting this mukta vati what should be the diet he can follows, such as vegetarian food/ non-vegetarian food/ sea food etc. which is preferred as a best to lower the blood pressure.

      2. If you have extremely high blood pressure, you may require other medications as well.
      3. For cholesterol, you may require other medicines.
      4. The best adjuvant for Mukta vati is warm milk.

  14. Vinay G says

    I have started taking Mukta vati since a month daily one tablet in the morning on empty stomach with water.

    Recently, it is noticed that I feel numbness on both palms early morning at 4 am till I wake up.

    1. Sunny says

  16. Shadaan says

    I take 2.5mg CIALIS daily for BPH, which is very helpful. Can I take Mukta Vati with CIALIS for high blood pressure?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      CIALIS contains TADALAFIL. There are no drug interactions reported by people who take Mukta vati and TADALAFIL together. For precautionary, purposes, one should keep 3 hours gap between Mukta Vati and TADALAFIL.

  17. mahesh says

    When should we take Mukta vati before breakfast (empty stomach) and after dinner or before dinner?

  18. G Hulsing says

    Can Mukta Vati be taken by all dosha’s – Vata Pitta Kapha? What is the maximum age of person can use Mukta Vati?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      However, Mukta Vati is an almost balance formulation, so it can be taken by people with any Dosha, but as we observed it exerts slightly hot action in the body. Because herbs with cool potency has less potential as compared to herbs with hot potency and the quantity of Praval Pishti and Mukta Pishti is insignificant in this formulation. Therefore, it is actually more beneficial for people primarily with dominance of VATA and KAPHA.

      Vata People should take it with warm milk and KAPHA people should take it with warm water. Pitta people are likely to observe side effects like restlessness, lightheadedness, dry mouth and vertigo. In such cases, it should be taken with lukewarm milk or with cold water.

  19. Dipak Brahmakshatriya says

    My confusion is that how long time I have to take Mukta Vati? Do I have to take it lifelong as allopathic blood pressure tab?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Most of patients require lifelong treatment of high blood pressure and it also applies to Mukta Vati. Some patients doing Yoga and Pranayama may reduce the requirement of antihypertensive drugs.

  20. Elisabeth Smith says

    Are there any reasons not to take this medicine for someone who has mild kidney decline? Creatinine = 1.1, GFR = 49.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Mukta Vati does not contain any ingredient that can cause any side effect in kidney patients, so it might be safe when taken under medical supervision.

  21. Sabine Klinger says
