Septilin Benefits & Medicinal Uses

Key Benefits

Improve immunity: Septilin enhances immunity. It has immunomodulatory and antioxidant action in the body, which helps preventing infections. It is non-specific immunity enhancer, which helps increasing antibody forming cell level and thus builds resistance against various infections. Especially, it is good remedy for people suffering from recurrent attacks of upper respiratory tract infections and sore throat.

Phagocytosis stimulation: Septilin activates white blood cells (macrophages) circulating in the bloodstream and stimulates phagocytosis, which helps fighting off the infection. Therefore, it provides great support in anti-infection therapies.

Combat fevers: However, Septilin has mild antipyretic properties, but it provides a great support to other ayurvedic remedies. Most commonly, it increases antipyretic action of Praval pishti, which is most common ayurvedic remedy used for lowering fever. According to symptoms and type of infection, patient may require other remedies.

Sore Throat

Septilin has soothing action and anti-inflammatory properties due to which it is effective remedy for sore throat. In mild cases, it can work alone, but in severe cases, it should be given with Gandhak Rasayan and Yashad Bhasma (calcined zinc).


Septilin reduces the purulence and volume of the sputum. It facilitates expectoration, reduces thickness of mucus and prevents superadded infections of the respiratory tract. It increases serum IgG level significantly when used for 2 months regularly. (Ref.)

Ingredients especially Guggul in it reduce inflammation and irritation of the lining of the bronchial tubes. Thus, it helps in bronchitis. Septilin also prevents repeated bouts of upper respiratory infections and bronchitis. For this purpose, it should be used for 3 to 6 months on regular basis.

Boils & Carbuncles

There are many herbs in Septilin, which have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties. Studies have also shown that Septilin is effective against Staphylococcus Aureus and Streptococci. It also prevents recurrence of boils and carbuncles.

    1. How long should we use Septilin in children for increasing immunity?

      Septilin contains most safe ingredients, which do not have any side effects in such quantity used in Septilin. It is considerably safe for long-term use (i.e. more than 6 months).

      However, we suggest stopping it after 6 months because 6 months regular use of Septilin is sufficient for building optimum immunity.

Is this related to Septilin?

    1. Septilin does not contain any such ingredient, which may cause loose stools. OCEM-5 drops contain five types of Tulsi liquid extracts. However, Tulsi has anti-diarrhea properties, but it may also cause diarrhea in some very rare cases when it is taken in higher dosage, especially if it is taken in extract form.

  12. Can Septilin be an alternative for SEPTRIN (combination of TRIMETHOPRIM & SULFAMETHOXAZOLE) because many want to avoid the conventional drugs?

      However, since we live abroad none of the doctors are aware or familiar with the Ayurvedic ingredients used in Septilin and hence unable to guide us about it.

        1. Thanks much for the reply Doctor.
          One clarification though: Septilin’s list of contents states to 6mg have Licorice (Mulethi), which is classified into the “Other Legumes” category of G6PDD contraindicated foods :

          Considering this is it still completely safe or relatively safe since its in small controlled amount in these medicines?

          1. Hello Doctor,

  17. Review – My son is now 4 years old. Since almost 1st year he has been suffering regularly with cold and cough at times at very hectic levels. We tried many things around from medicines to homemade options etc.

    Recently we started with Septilin syrup for him. Since 4 months, we have been giving him very religiously daily 2 times. It’s a like a miracle for his health. This summer he has been swimming daily, eating ice creams, little oily stuff too, sleeping more frequently in air conditioning, basically all that stuff which is cold.

    Septilin is really working good and hope it works better always. I am too prone to cough and cold and have started with this and let’s see…

  18. Is Septilin alone effective for the child suffering from recurrent cough, runny nose, tonsillitis and difficulty in breathing other medicines are also needed along with?

  19. Does Septilin alone work for breathing problems or asthma or do we need to use it in combination of other syrup?
    How long should this product be used for overcome from breathing and asthma problems?

    1. Septilin is not formulated for asthma and breathing troubles, but ingredients such as Guggul, Yashtimadhu etc. in it can help in breathing troubles and reduces frequency of asthma attacks.

      Bresol Syrup is a main Himalaya’s medicine prepared for allergies, breathing troubles and asthma. Septilin should be used in combination with Bresol syrup for breathing difficulties.

      Both medicines should be taken at least 3 months for good results.

  20. What is the dosage of Septilin Syrup for 8 years old child who is suffering cold and cough frequently? How long can this medicine be continued to stop her symptoms completely.

    1. 5 ml Septilin Syrup should be given thrice daily in case of 8 years old child.

      In frequent cough and cold, Septilin should be taken for at least 3 months or more.

  21. No doubt it’s useful, but please guide and tell whether consuming Septilin is harmful if one is trying to conceive?

    1. Yes, Septilin can be used for sinusitis. The long-term use can help to reduce recurrence remarkably. In Chronic cases of sinusitis, it alone can help, but it can be used along with antibiotics for faster relief in acute sinusitis.

  22. Is septilin and cystone the right medicine for treatment of bilateral polycystic ovaries syndrome. If not, can you suggest the right medicine?

  23. How long Septilin can be given to 6 months old baby having regular Cough and Cold? How much dosage should be given?

    1. Septilin can be given until complete relief regardless the duration. In recurrent episodes, we generally recommend it for at least 3 months. Dosage for 6 months old baby should be 1 to 2 ml twice or thrice daily.

  24. For boosting the immunity…
    For How many months septilin has to be taken…
    And in what doses of tablets for an adult….

  57. Septilin syrup contains parabens. Is it safe to take for long periods? As parabens are potential carcinogens…

    1. In the most cases, septilin is required only for a few weeks. Some patients may have to use it for a longer duration of about 3 to 6 months. Many are taking it without any issue.

      The safety of parabens is still a health controversy. Both aspects (in favor of or disfavor of parabens) lack strong evidence. So, we cannot give any statement for safety concerns of parabens.

      There are several alternatives that your doctor can recommend in classical ayurvedic medicines. These medicines don’t contain any form of preservatives. So, you need to consult an ayurvedic doctor to get prescription according to your health problem.

  58. My father has had frightening allergic reactions to several pharma antibiotics. My friend, who’s an allopathic physician in N India, recommended Septilin. I’m wondering if it’s effective for h pylori (along with mastic gum) or helpful for Lyme disease. Is it safe for those with auto immune diseases? Thank you for the thorough information written about Septilin.

    1. In ayurveda, we don’t give immunosuppressant medicines in autoimmune diseases. Instead, we give immunomodulator medicines. In our sense, immunomodulator means the substance that improves and modifies the reaction of the body’s defense mechanism and aids in identifying healthy & unhealthy cells and microbes. So, ayurvedic immunomodulatory medicines restore the natural immunity.

      In our opinion, the ingredients (especially guggulu) in Septilin should be safe to consume in autoimmune disease because of their immunomodulatory action.

      1. Thank you for clearly explaining Ayurveda’s view on auto immune disease. Himalaya company USA is selling a product called ‘Immunocare’ instead of Indian made product Septilin. Attempting to find complete-composition-lists, to compare the 2 products, out of curiosity. Thankfully, various ebay sellers carry Septilin & send it worldwide except to Sweden. LOVE your site & wish you had a store!

  60. My son is 12 years old.
    He has seizures from last Dec 2017.
    And taking oleptal 150 mg twice a day since then.
    He gets cold and throat infection quite often. Can I give him septilin syrup along with the above medication?
