  1. Doc sahab,
    I was prescribed following formula for depression and anxiety:-
    Moti pishti-4g
    Praval pishti-10g
    Giloy satva-20g
    Rajat bhasam-2g
    Swarn makshik bhasam-10g
    Swarn bhasam-1g
    Now my question is whether adding Mahavatvidhvansan Ras to above formula will increase its efficacy as I have vata aggaravated or it is not required at this much dose of swarna and rajat bhasam.
    Thanx in advance!!
