Side effects of Divya Mukta Vati (used for High Blood Pressure)?

+7 votes
What are the side effects of Divya Mukta Vati which is used for High Blood Pressure?

I do experience nasal congestion especially in night because of this medicine. Do you face similar problem?
asked in Alternative Medicine by anonymous
I have been taking Muktavati for 12 years. The only side effect I have is nasal congestion when I am sleeping. I really don't know if it is because of Muktavati or natural.
take DMV with milk or with on capsule of cod liver oil and no nasal congestion.
yes i am also facing same problem,   1. Nasal congestion,  2. Breathlessness at night & day also, 3. General lethargy
I also say that it is without side-effect is not a correct fact.
I began taking Mukta Vati in May and almost immediately got what I thought was late onset of Hay fever, every night I am congested and use Oltrivine to breathe. BUT my blood pressure is fantastic so I put up with the side effects.
I had symptoms of cold after taking this medicine, of which nasal congestion was major. Felt sluggish also.

my blood pressure was 145/95 so I was taking 2 mukta vati tablets a day(morning and night), my blood pressure reduced to 120/80 within 2-3 days but I was facing nasal block problem so I reduced evening tablet, now also I feel nasal block but not much(I'm taking 1 tablet in the morning).

nasal congestion is common when you take mukta vati. even I experience. I dont know why it cause but you can reduce dose to 1 tablet and check.
I discussed this with Vaidya and he advised me to take Mukta Vati with warm water. It improved the situation a lot.

yes   acute nasal congestion is the side effect of Divya Mukta Vati         it is wrong  to say that ayurvedicmedicines do not have any side effects.
answered by anonymous
It is foolish for anybody to believe that any medicine ( whatever 'System/Pathy') will not have any side effect. If it has some effect, it has to have side effect.

answered by anonymous
It seem that Ivy's Mukta Vati is better than Divyas. I've read that this person had a better experience with Ivy's.

Divya Muktawati  is good medicine for controlling blood pressure . But like every other medicine (ie allopathic ) for bp  it has side effects  too. I too mukta vati for some time and I noticed following side effects.

1. nasal congestion , you will your nose is blocked specially when u trying lay down in bed.

2. The other side effect which i notice after taking muktawati for long time (over 1 year) . It makes your body very sensitive to cold. I remember earlier i can easily face cold upto 2- 3 degrees without getting any trouble . But after taking muktawati my body became very sensitive and i feel to shiver even at 10 degree which is not that tough cold. It will make your body more sensitive to cold.

For mostly people the dosage advised (ie 2 tablets in morning , empty stomach)  , i feel is very high. For starting this dosage is okay . But after few days reduce it to 1 tablet at morning and than after few days reduce it to 1/2 tablet daily.  

To my experience, only half tablet in morning is good enough to control your blood pressure . With that one must do pranayam and other exercise  to  get rid of nasal congestion and cold sensitivity problem.

Remember ayurvedic medicine are different from allopathic medicines. So they cant be just taken in same way. Ayurveda medicine  always require supportive lifestyle modification to make it work effectively. But its definitely more safer than allopathic medicines.

You can either put one drop of Almond Oil in both nose before sleeping in night . I actually bought Aloe Vira Moisturizer from Patanjali's shop to apply on face . I also started facing dryness in nose after taking Mukta Vati for 3-4 days . I applied the light Aloe vira Moisturizer with the help of ear buds in both noses . I am now feeling better actually .
I agree with. Just by doing Pranayama everyday, now even Allopathy Doctors are recommending for Pranaya, it will resolve the problem
I realise that nosal congetion is due to the fact that body is digging out all the bad substances from the body...
1. Couging: To take out all chest congetion.
2. Stool: To take out all stomak congetion.
3. Perpiration: To take out water from all skin cells. (Therefore they are telling to take water in the monrning).

It is basically cleaning our body from all bad substances.

This is what I have noticed. Please advise if you have anyother view.
Your observation is very correct. I m taking 1 tab DMV daily  for more than one year. It has given me relief from HBP but the nasal congestion and breathlessness is a serious issue and all needs to be informed about it. Now i m going to reduce the dose to half tab daily to reduce the side-effects. Hope it will work.

To resolve nose congestion problem, Take
Before food: Divya Mukta vati
After food : Divya Medha vati
Dosage of both tablet  should be same
One will never get nose congestion/cold/etc problem with this.

yes i do. prior to taking this tablet i never had such stuffy nose syndrome. i was a healthy person with regard to breathing and lungs. but after taking this tablet for 2 weeks it is turning out be a full blown sinucitis. i suspect the culprit is the preservative ingredients used in the tablet. but don't know for sure. ram

I have no side effects and have been taking over a year.   I think many people can have nasal problems in the cold....could be seasonal.  Also as far as ulcers - could be you've had them for a long time.  Personally, I do very well on this.
I agree--no problems with nasal congestion at all.  I have taken it for 7 months and only experienced 10 pounds weight gain after maintaining my previous weight for 15 years.  Anyone have weight gain issues?
I also have 10 pounds weight gain within 1 year of use.

I've been taking DMV for more than a year and found it effective for the treatment of HBP.  The side effect, after quite a few months, has been nasal congestion esp at night when you lay down to rest.
I'm reducing to 1 pill daily as my BP has been controlled.
answered by anonymous
i started taking mukta vati a year ago and it has wokred very well om my bp but i lost sense of smell, its been a year and i dont smell anything, has anyone lost sense of smell otaking mukta vati ?
I never heard anyone complaining about smell, I know many people take Mukta vati but all complained about nasal congestion.

Have you started any other medication or made any changes in your diet? that might impact.
