  1. Hello Sir,

    I am an Engineer (no workout only does evening walk)… having high BP (90/145 and 100/152). I was given Arjin by one of the Ayurveda doctor. I am not getting any relief by Arjin tabel. Now due to BP I felt dizziness and headache so I started taking Allopathy (Aztric 40) . But I don’t want to keep taking BP medicine and want to treat with Ayurveda to cure it. Please suggest.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Can arjin tablets be used by person of 170/90bp.Is it harmful to take along with allopathic medicine.Lastly is it to be taken for lifetime and can it be used by daibetic patients

  3. In 2009, I was diagnised to have high BP and Ischemia in the TMT test. The doctors from Jayadeva Institute of Cardiology, Govt of Karnataka, Bangalore prescribed 1. Angiogram 2. BP tablets 3. Blood Thinner. I forget the names of the allopathic medicines. As I had trust in Ayurveda, I consulted a senior vaidya who suggested me just to take 1-0-1 Arjin tablets and nothing else. I started taking Arjin as advised since 2009, sometimes I was unable to take due to touring and other endeavours and that way not so regularly. In addition I used to listen to karnatak Classical music regularly as also watch Charlie Chaplin films and Laurel and Hardy films regularly at night. In 2014, I met the same doctor and after checking up said, there is no problem, everything is ok. Then I told the doctor that I did not follow any of his advise such as Angiogram, taking BP tablets and blood thinner. He was surprised.
    Next in 2019 Nov I had to undergo prostate operation. The doctor advised Thrombosis test and said I cannot be operated and asked me since how long I have been taking Blood Thinner. I mentioned this story and said, I have not taken a single thinner tablet till date. Then he said which tablet I am taking for BP and I said Arjin, but the Allopathy doctor did not understand or appreciate. He said I need to stop Arjin, since it is acting as Blood thinner also. Hence i stopped taking Arjin for 15 days and took Vitamin k injection and after favourable reading reegarding blood clot, I was operated and am OK. I am continuing to take Arjin 0-0-1 only. My BP has always been almost uniform at around 90/140. Sometimes if it crossed 90, the doctor used to advise me not to panic but to continue Arjin and I have continued and am still using. Arjin has no side effects as many allopathy medicines are for BP. MG Chandrakanth, former Director, ISEC, Bangalore, India
