    Does Rasnadi Kashayam tablet will any effect on Lever, bcoz it is used as pain killer.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Please note that all the medicines which are pain killers need not necessarily have bad effect on liver. It is only non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs of allopathy (NSAIDs) which are called as pain killers have side effect on liver.
      Rasnadi kashayam does not have any side effect on liver.

    Does Rasnadi kwath can cure Osteoporosis

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It helps to relieve pain and inflammation related to osteoporosis. But it may not cause bone re-formation. It may not ‘cure’ osteoporosis or osteo arthritis.

  3. Am taking this kashayam for my heel pain upper back pain. But stil no relife last 15 days am using the same

  4. Could you please advise whether Rasnadi Kashayam, taken by a patient who is on Celebrex Antiinflammatory medication, could raise blood pressure within two days of starting rasnadi?
    Would you advise against taking both these two medications?
    Your answer is very much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Celebrex (Celecoxib) is quite a powerful anti inflammatory medication with many potential side effects.
      There is nothing in Rasnadi kashayam that would increase Blood pressure.
      Rasnadi kashayam – if it is highly concentrated, may cause worsening of gastritis or burning sensation in stomach.
      This is why, in patients with sensitive stomach, it is given after food, with more quantity of water (dilution).
      Celebrex is very likely to cause gastritis. It is its main side effect.

      Hence, if you are taking both of them, together, I would advice you to maintain a minimum gap of 30 minutes between the two medicines. Celebrex, being the first one.

      Whether celerbrex would cause increase in blood pressure, when it is given with Rasnadi Kashayam?.. Pretty hard to tell but chances are very very less.

  5. Can feeding mothers take Rasnerandadi kashayam? My wife was suggested to take this for gout who is feeding one year old baby. Need you kind advice.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes, she can take. I assume she is taking only after dilution with equal quantity of water.
