Ayurveda/High BP and Muktavati


I am 35 and having high BP 140/90. I wanted to try with Ayurvedic medicine first and went to the local Patanjali center in Pune.

They have given me Muktavati. 2---2 tabs, morning and night. But this medicine appears to have a lot of side effects. It gives me nasal congestion, I feel sleepy all day long, and so lethargic that I can't exercise. Even if it works, I do not think I will be able to take it.

I have never seen an Ayurvedic medicine with so many side effects.

Is there any other medicine that I can try?

It is not its side effects but either it has decreased your BP suddenly.But there is no chance of nasal congestion with this.
It better to check your BP again,then only come to any assumption.
Even then you can try Cardimap tab of Maharishi Ayurveda.It is also a very good combination.
