Kamadugha Ras Muktayukta – Uses, Dose, Side Effects

Kamadugha ras, an Ayurvedic tablet is used for treating gastritis, headache, burning urination, fever and bleeding disorders etc. Usually, this medicine is suffixed as Muktayukta or Mouktikayukta. This is to indicate the presence of Mukta pishti in this medicine (Pearl calx). This is done to differentiate Kamdugha ras from Kamdudha ras, which is another Ayurvedic medicine with similar indications but different set of ingredients.
