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 took DMW for about 3 weeks in Houston. BP goes down dramatically with MAJOR side effects. Nasal congestion so severe could not breathe at night. My running of 3 miles went to less than half a mile. I think they put steriods in this to make it work...FAST. Be careful and do not fall for the hype.
NuI also face same problm.
I took Muktawati for 15 days. I noticed drop in pulse rare from 72 to 62. Treadmill exercise reduced to 10 min from 40 min. It reduced stamina and energy. It has slowed heart and now body does not get enough Oxygen due to slowed pulse rare. ..This is a very bad medicine. Never take it.
i am having mukta batti for more than 3 years now. now i have noticed that it is reducing pulse rate? My pulse rate is below 50 now. should i give up taking this medicine and swift to Aellopathy ?
I took 2 tabs in the morning for about 30 days and felt all the symptoms mentioned in the blog but never made the connection. The worst side effect was that I developed a complete AV block, heart rate at 33 and needed a pacemaker.

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.
Okay thanks for ur advised reply.. With warm water but in morning or at night?

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.

It is true that nasal congestion has happened with me as well.beside this it also creates breathing difficlties.
answered by anonymous
yes same problem with me but i dont know what is the true reason for this problem
Yes Its true that people feel Nasal Congestion after taking Mukta Vati. I took the tablet for 15 - 20 days. when I realise that the nasal congestion is due to this I stopped taking it. But for past 2 months the nasal congestion is still their. Don't know when it will go.
True, nasal congestion is a major side effect of Divya mutations vati, also it makes us more sensitive to cold, even though BPA comes to normal.I have been using this medicine since 3 months from now, previously it worked finer,but since last 10 days or so, nasal congestion started, now i will try taking it with warm water or cow's milk

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 Mukta Vati

Divya Mukta vati  is good medicine for controlling blood pressure . But like every other medicine (ie allopathic ) for bp  it has side effects  too. I took Divya 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.
i used to have high blood pressur of 180 0ver 100 but with taking muktavati over a few tears i now have low blood pressur of 95 /50 but don't want to stop it as it might shoot up
Please take Divya Mukta Vati with warm COW MILK to avoid side effects. I had started DMV last week on detecting of High BP.
whats your pulse rate because mine dropped a lot.

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.
In my family three of us taking mukta vati regularly and observed significant wt. Gain.
Thats crazy there is nothing in there that should cause weight gain, that would mean somehow it is slowing your metabolism

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.

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.
I too realize that I have lost the sensitivity to smell and nasal congestion after consuming Divya Mukta Vati for almost 4-5 months,
In addition, my pulse rate is also low after taking This vati. I am having 60 to 68 pulse rate after taking Divya mukta vati for 4-5 months
same problem, my pluse rate also below 60 around 54.
what I wanna know is is co q10 better the same or worse anyone know
Hi,I'm 50+,and using mdv for around 10years now.nassel congestion is common.I also feel some depression also.But my bp is well controlled.
