  1. What is the difference between action of sudarshan ghanvati and indukantham kashayam? Both seem to act against fever.

    • Indukantam is generally used when fever originates from bad eating – stomach / intestinal origin. Sudarshan ghanvati is commonly used in viral fevers.

      • Thanks Dr Hebbar for an excellent explanation.

        I have a few more questions on this topic:

        1) What about sanjeevani vati which can also be used for fever. can it be used to replace indukantham kashayam?

        2) Are there any good proprietary ayurvedic med that are good for fever?
