  1. Does Muktavati have anti constipation properties as well, please confirm? I have loose motion after taking this. Also my nose was completely chocked while I was doing yoga on next day after taking this medicine. I had 2 tablet initially while my Blood pressure was below 145/90.

  2. What can be used safely instead of mukta vati ? My nose clogs up and sometimes my heart beat goes to slow

    • The medicine causes nasal congestion. Personally I have noticed that when you take the tablet in your mouth, chew it a bit and have luke warm milk with it, the congestion instances are reduced. Once BP comes to controlled region, reduce intake of medicine to minimum which keeps your BP okay. Over a week, you may need to keep a tab on BP and arrive personally at such conclusion.

    • Dear ,I am also having same problem and we know Mukta vati act like magic’but it’s side effects on nasal blockage can be controlled by using two drops oil in nasal and taking 1tab instead of 2
