Pharmacological points –
Productive cough – The amount of Vamshalochana in Sitopaladi Churna is – 25.8 % and in Talisadi is 10.4 %. Vamshalochana is very useful in relieving productive cough. Hence, when compared between these two, Sitopaladi is more useful in productive cough.

Fever – Because ginger and black pepper are very effective in treating fever, if the patient has viral fever with cough and cold symptoms, Talisadi Churan is lot better than the other.
When it comes to anti viral, anti bacterial and anti-microbial activity, Talisadi holds slight edge over the other.

For digestive disorders like indigestion, anorexia, diarrhea etc – Talisadi is more suitable than the other.

Effect on Tridosha –
Both these Ayurvedic medicines are useful in Kapha and Vata imbalance disorders.

Dosage form –
Talisadi Churna (powder) is also manufactured in the form of tablet. But Sitopaladi is not.

Common features:
Both are indicated in cough, cold, asthma, indigestion etc, as we have seen above.
Both are contra-indicated in people with diabetes.
Both are more commonly used in powder form.

So, these are a few ways we can compare these two effective Ayurvedic medicines, which are widely practiced as single medicine or in combination with other medicines.
