    • Gokshuradi Guggulu contains Trikatu and its potency being hot, high dosage will generate extra heat in the stomach and cause stomach irritation. Dosage prescribed by an Ayurvedic doctor should be taken to avoid above complications, other wise the product is totally safe and brings best results.

    • Hello Sir, Removing the cause of trouble can treat the problem. Would advise Chandraprabha vati instead. Do consult a ayurvedic physician for the medication.

      Note: Please do avoid over the counter medication.

    • If there is infection, then Gokshuradi guggulu can be taken along with Chandraprabha vati. But if there is no infection, Gokshruadi guggulu can cause increased urination frequency.
