  1. Dear Dr Shirish,
    Thanks for your kind appreciation. I am unaware of patoladi Guggulu tablet.
    I know that Patoladi kashayam is made into tablet form called as Patoladi Kashayam tablet, by AVN.

    I have following references of patoladi Ghrita but none of them contain any guggulu.
    1. Patola Ghruta – Vanga Sena Samhita, Kshudraroga Chikitsa – Patola, Triphala, Rasanjana – Used in Ahiputana.
    2. Patolamuladi Ghrita – Charaka Samhita, Chikitsa Sthana, 12 (Shwayathu Chikitsa) – Patolamoola, Devadaru, Trayanti, Pippali, Abhaya, Vishala, yashti, Katurohini, Chandana, Nichula, Darvi – useful in Visarpa, Daha, jwara, Sannipata, Trushna, Visha, Shvayathu.
    3. Patola shunti Ghrita – Chakradatta – Amlapitta Chikitsa Kaphapittahara.
    4. Patoladi Ghrita – the one explained above.
    5. Panchatikta Guggulu Ghrita contains Patola as an ingredient.
