  1. What is the outcome of over dosage !? is there any serious problem pops up ???

    • Hi Divya,
      If it is a single time over-dosage there is not very significant side effects. However on a long run, overdosage may have ill effects on liver, kidneys and brain.
      Note that this product should only be used if your doctor has prescribed, for particular limited period of time. This product can not be used for self medication.

    • Hi
      I am using SLV-10 Gm and Paityantala Ras-30 Mg. Please explain the side effects and advantage.

  2. Hi Hebbar,
    It is mentioned in the pack that no sexual activities permitted during course of medicine. whats the reason behind this?

    • Usually, while taking the Rasayana treatment (rejuvenation treatment) and while taking medicines with heavy metal ingredients, it is advised to avoid sexual activities. The purpose is to protect Ojas (to enhance immunity). It is just a general advice. It is not a very strict rule to be followed, unless your doctor advises so.

  3. Could those pills make you high?

  4. hi iam tharun i need manasa mitra vatakam.which is the best company manufacturing this tablets,is dis available in AP if so where.please mail yo me
    Thank You

  5. Here in the US, the heavy metal issue is used to scare us off Ayurvedic medicines. You mention heavy metals in this formulation. Would you please tell me what ingredient you are referring to and whether the metals are there by design or through contamination?

    Should people who are less able to detoxify heavy metals avoid these?

    Many thanks!

    • Dear Mary,
      There are no heavy metals in Manasamitra Vatakam. But there are a few Bhasmas (Calx / microfine powder). Like Gold and Silver Bhasma (calx). They are there by design. In this particular product, it can be had my those who are less able to detoxify heavy metals.
      On a general note, a few of Ayurvedic medicines contain heavy metals like mercury by design. But the dose is very very low and they are used for a specific time period with a specific dose. An Ideal Ayurveda doctor would reveal such a fact to his patient, while prescribing.

  6. Hi doctor

    • Both are same. How long to take depends on your response to the treatment and doctor’s advice. Usually a treatment of 2 – 6 months might be required, with gradual reduction in dosage.

      • Hello dr hebber , I have been suffering fr anxiety and have been getting panic attacks , my doctor has suggested me to take mentat ds , along with tagara and manasamitra I have been using them for 3 months now I feel ok but not completely recovered , would long term use of this medicine have any side affects? Also please is there a way where in I can get completely recovered?

        • Dear Rammi,
          The medicines are apt for you. The dose needs to be tapered down. Please consult your Ayurveda doctor for continuous advice. I cannot judge the dose and future course of medicine based on the info given.

Anyway to reduce anxiety), he prescribed Manasamitra and Ashtanga Ghrutham. Is it okay for me to continue these. The doctor asked me to continue these two for 3 months.


    • Hi, if your doctor has prescribed it, you can continue both for three months. Wish you all the best.

      • Hi Hebber,

        by the way, is it true that ayurved dose not have any remedy for stammering ?

  12. Jalil (Russian Federation) says:

  16. Hello Dr Hebbar,
    Is it ok to take this medicine for more than six months at a time (even under doctor supervision). What are the long term side effects of this medicine

  17. Ahmed Helal says:

    Hello Dr Hebbar,

    i have my son Omar have 4 and half year and still not talking up to now and one of my friends advice for me the same to help he to talk.

    kindly advice if the same will help him in next period to talk and as per my friend I can give him half tablet daily in the middle of the day.

    appreciate your support for the same.

  18. Hey I was asked by doc to have manasamitra along with ashwaganda syrup and aja lehyam…any issues in having??

  19. Prasanna (PG) says:

    Dr Hebbar – I took the MMV prescription from a well known Ayurvedic doctor, not self medication !! Still it gave me some side-effect such as blood through urine, only once. Since then i stopped the dosage but then the doctor altered the prescription to Swarna Bhasma rahit(skip) and this seems to have worked? Currently I take 2 tabs at bed-time

    My question is how low long should I take this medicine for UC and depression condition? ANy other precautions I need to follow?
    Please advise…

  20. what are the effects MMV can have if taken by normal person? I have been suggested by Ayurvedik doctor friends to take these tablets during exams to increase concentration.
    what are its side effects? how to minimize them?
    if it helps in boosting academic performance, what are Pathya to be followed?

    • I would not recommend this for a normal person to take it to increase concentration. Something like Brahmi ghrita – 5 – 10 drops everyday, followed by hot water, in the morning, after food, for one month looks a safer better choice.

  21. Hello Doctor, some years back i took the medicine Flutee(brand name) for headache caused by anxiety and depression for six months on the advice of a neuro-surgeon. The problem has cropped up again. Can i take MMV on my own?

  22. Can MMV recommended for a 86 year old woman? My friend is recommending this for her short term memory condition.

    • Difficult question.
      If the weight and strength of the lady is good, then half – one tablet can be administered. However, you need to consult an Ayurveda doctor directly before taking this medicine.

  23. is nagarjuna a good company fr manasmitra vatakam!?

  24. hanmanthrao.k.panthulu says:

  26. Sir I m prescribed with this tablet along with a combination of ashwagandharishtam balarishtam anddasamoollaristam for anxiety but I feel anxious through out the day

  27. I had my share of worst with going for benzodiazepines , they gave quick instant reliefs. But actually we are embracing the DEVIL in order to escape from the demon.
    lorazepam – Whenever i hear the name…not anxiety :)…. my heart will race at 300 bpm.
    My immediate concern was not about anxiety but to quite these DRUG!!!. I Know its not real…a fake world…it will built for your ….esteem, confidence, will power…But the moment you step about from this drug its all Gone…Comes the worst nightmare…side effects. (light flashing in eyes , Feels like head is exploding off , Numbs, Dizziness , || anxiety attack was mild considering these)
    The amount i suffered with the drug…Finally in-order to withdraw i had to go a roller coster ride for 2 months Nexito, Feliz, Oresta…etc . After finally escaped…. 🙂

    But discovered a TRUE now out of anxiety..YES OUT OF ANXIETY…No Drug , Therapy etc
    Thanks to the great saints, Legacy s called Ayurveda

    • Thanks for sharing your experience. But I suggest readers to consult an Ayurveda doctor directly, rather than self medicating with this (or any other medicine for depression / anxiety).

    • I would really need few inputs.
      May I know how much time it took for you to go out of anxiety, How was your doses? You were patient of GAD or SAD? Have you stopped Manasmitra Vati now?

  28. is Imis a good company for MMV?

  29. Hello Dr Hebbar, I was told to take Manasamitra Vatakam by a Dr in India who said it would be fine to take it with my Anti-depressants. I’ve noticed I have become more anxious than usual so am wondering should I take it at night instead of the morning?

  33. Hello Doctor, I have beem prescribed Brahmi vati, sutshekhar ras and manasmitra vatakam along with other Arishtas for 3 months. After taking for about 20 days , i have a sulking feeling with shivering body and sleep all the time. Can this be caused by mmv . My doubt is for mmv because when my mother was taking mmv she got these things and once she stopped it she was okay. Though the ayurvesic doctor refuses to believe that it is because ofmmv only. I m takind 2 tablets twice in a day

    • It could be due to Sutshekhar ras or Mmv. But both are very efficacious medicines, when used under doctor’s supervision. Better to stop them or at least reduce the dose.

    my doctor has prescribed Manasamitra vatakam for severe anxiety. the dosage was 2-2-2 and after 4 days, I have palpiatations and stomach burning.Can I reduce the dosage to 1 tablet per day myself?

    • Hi, it is better to reduce to dose to only one tablet at night after food, in your case. You can continue it for 1 – 2 months and consult your Ayurveda doctor for further course of treatment.

  47. Hi Doctor,
    I am taking Manasamitram gulika from the last 7days by the advice of ayurvadic doctor. Now today I have vomiting and after that blood has come out a little bit. Is it OK to continue this medicine.

    • Hi, as you may have gone through side effects of manasamitra vatakam, overdose may cause severe gastic irritation and bleeding in gastrum also. So, it is better to consult your doctor at the earliest and confirm the dosage you have taken is right.

  52. Good Evening Sir
    I m diabetic in first stage. Can Manamitra Vataka is advisable in such dieses also?

  53. Hello Sir ,

    My father ( 72 years ) is allopathic treatment for anxiety disorder related depression for last 15 years. It was under control so far with this medication. For last two months the anxiety has shoot up , its taking time to respond with allopathic medication.

    Also with the anxiety level shooting up , if something comes to his mind that is required to be done , he is becoming too stubborn to do it. His medicine requirement for clonazepam was increased to 1.5 mg from 0.75 mg apart from other medications.

    I met with an Ayurvedic doctor who has prescribed , Mansa Mitra Vatkam (DS ) make Amrita Drugs – 1-0-1 for a month…I have the following questions ..

    Is it safe to use MMV with allopathic drugs ?
    How long is it safe to use ?
    Once we stop using it , will the anxiety come back again ?
    Do we have to repeat the dose any prescribed timelines ?
    My father has constipation problem , wud it have any impact ?
    Since it has iron and gold …wud this heavy metal have any adverse impact on health ?


    • hello…,
      yes it is safe to use MMV along with allopathic drugs noted that allopathic drugs should be gradually tapered which are meant for anxiety.
      it can be used 6 months to 1 year, or even more based on doctor’s prescription.
      no, it may not recur again, but it is also to be stopped by tapering the dose not all of a sudden.
      repetition depends on the condition of the patient which is to be decided by the treating Ayurvedic doctor.
      it doesn’t worsen constipation.
      iron, gold and other heavy metals are present in a very minute and in purified form. they are meant to treat not to affect adversely.

      • I started the dose for my father from today morning …his anxiety level seems to have picked up a bit..sud I change it to night only ..or is it just a coincidence …can this medicine be taken in the evening instead of night , just to avoid too many medicines in the night ….also wanted to know , how many days it generally takes to show up result…do u think I sud look at any other medicine along with me to address anxiety related disorder …is the any precautions to be taken while taking MMV?

  54. Prashanth says:

  56. Hi Dr. Janardhana Hebbar,

    I am Ragavendraprasad.C, a male, married and aged 31, a resident of chennai suffering with Obsesive Compulsive Disorder from the age of 10.

    I am also suffering from constipation problem as a side effect of the alopathy medicines I am taking. I have faced a situation of panic attack and hypomania in February 2015.

    Some Symptoms I am facing currently are,

    1. Contamination type of OCD.
    2. Checking the gas for several times for it to be off.
    3. Reassurance seeking.
    4. Obsessive Thoughts.

    Alopathy medicines I am taking currently are,

    Clonil 75 mg 1 – 0 -2 ( 225 mg per day)
    Prestiq 50 mg 0 – 0 – 1 per day
    Zipsydon 80 mg 0 – 0 – 1 per day

    Ayurvedic Medicines I am taking are,

    Chiruvilwadi kashayam 15ml with 60 ml of boiled water with a pinch of Rock Salt and one teaspoon of sukhavirechana Choornam in the morning.

    Mrudweekadi Kashayam 15 ml with 60 ml boiled water with half a teaspoon of sugar ( as per doctor’s advise as I didn’t get fried paddy, which the doctor suggested) at 5 : 30 pm

    Durlabhharistam 30 ml with 30 ml boiled and cooled water one manasa mitram gulika in the night.

    For external applications : Madhuyastyadi tailam for head application, shudhabala tailam for body application.

    Please help me to have a direct personal appointment with you in your clinic and if that is not possible please let me know and I will mail you all my symptoms so that you can advise me with the ayurvedic medications. As I found from the internet that the majority of the ayurvedic medicines I am taking are to treat my constipation problem which I have and for piles problem, which I don’t have.

    One of my friend who is a doctor has said that there would be metal mixed with the ayurvedic medicines and it would cause serious damage to the liver and kidneys. Is it so ?

    Also I request you to give me the contact details of some good Ayurvedic Doctors in Chennai as I am not able to find a genuine ayurvedic doctor in Chennai, whom I can meet personally and get advise on the Ayurvedic medicines which you suggest me to take.

    1) can I take them both at the same time?
    2) the doctor has not mentioned about tapering the dose but has given me 30tablets to take. Should Manasamitra vadakam be tapered down slowly like alopathic psychotropics or can they be stopped after my dosage?

    Your blog is AMAZING doctor and the service you provide by replying to questions is really great. Thank you, thank you.


    • Hi, you can take both at the same time. But ideally 30 minutes gap, first citalopram and then Manasamitracan be taken.
      The manasamitra tablet can be taken for 2 – 3 months of time, and only then the tapering down can start, in your case.
      Thanks for your kind words of appreciation.

  65. i have a spasm around rear of my ear since 5years i m trying clonozepam as i have a very disturbed sleep pattern kindly advise

  66. Mentat ds or saraswatarista which is better for severe anxiety and depression.

  67. Dear Sir,
    Which is better Mentat tablets or bhrami gritham or sarawatharistam?

    For frequent forgetfulness, difficulty in recollecting things, losing synchronization between thinking and speaking – thus requiring careful slow talk syncing thought and speech, anger, nervousness and tremors while in anger, stammering while anxious or nervous, stammering while trying to speak fastly.

    Thank you.

    Sir u have quoted on swarna bhasma page that bael should not be taken with it.this med has both of them is it ok

  69. Hi Doctor,

    1) Must one abstain from masturbation/sexual intercourse when taking manasamitra vatakam for the medicine to take effect?

    2) Are there specific timings when Manasamitra Vatakam must be consumed like during sunrise in the morning or can we take anytime in the morning (eg 9am)?


  70. Sir, my quotable doctor has prescribed manasamitra vatakam (night), brahmi (morning) and Suvarnamuktadi gulika (thrice a day after food) for my anxiety problem, for 15 days.

    I am already seeing improvements in my anxiety and energy levels.

    Could you please explain the benefits and composition of Suvarnamuktadi gulika? I can read about manasamitra and brahmi in your site, but can’t find any reference to Suvarnamuktadi gulika anywhere on the net….

    Thank you.

    • Will write about it shortly

      • Thank you sir. May I also request you to write about how to treat anxiety attacks holistically? I am 43, and my kottakkal (it autocorrected as quotable in the previous comment of mine !) consultant said that this is very common because of pre-menopausal hormonal imbalance.
        I find his medications helpful (brahmi, manasamitra vatakam + Suvarnamuktadi gulika) but I am very uneasy that if I stopped taking them I would go back to anxiety, or if I would develop resistance to them. Last year, I took a 3 month treatment, and it helped for almost a year, until the anxiety relapsed this year.

  71. DR Hebbar is the best . thanks DR

  72. MANASAMITHRA VATAKAM GULIKA is this the same what Manasamitra Vatakam ? if not , what the difference.? my 7 years old with mild autism has got prescribed this from Ayurveda Dr . but I just read that you recomending Saraswatarishta and Brahmi Ghrita. Can he take 2 of those instead of MANASAMITHRA VATAKAM GULIKA?
    You block Dr is just amazing . Thanks for all you replays and helps , I think we all here are very appreciate to be look for advice and have chance to chat with You. Namaste .

    • Hi, MANASAMITHRA VATAKAM GULIKA and Manasamitra Vatakam – both are same.
      Please ignore my suggestions and please go ahead with your consulting doctor’s prescription.
      Thanks for your kind words of appreciation.

  73. Shailesh Lotlikar says:

    What is difference between manasamitra gulika tablet & sarswatarishta with gold ?

    • Manasamitra is commonly used in treating depression, psychiatric conditions etc. Saraswatarishta is also used in depression but is more popular as a brain tonic, suitable for all ages.

  74. Hi Doctor,
    I have been diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder. Been about 5 years and I am now thinking about medication. My doctor has prescribed manasmitra vati
    I am finding good relief. I just have one question , will my anxiety come back as soon as I stop this medication? Or does it cure the problem

  77. Can manasamitra vatka replace clonzepam 2mg?

  78. I am taking ayurvedic anti-anxiety medicines can i take allopathic treatment along this and how to take medicines….

    • You can continue with this, along with allopathic medicines. Refer your doctor’s prescription for dosage. Better to maintain a gap of 30 minutes between this and the allopathic medicines. Take Allopathic medicine first, and then take this, after 30 minutes.

Meanwhile I also went to an ayurvedachaya and have started manasmitra vatika 001 and ashwagandharishta and saraswati rishta 15 ml x twice plus brahmi cap twice a day. How long will it take me to become normal

    from long back i am suffuring from OCD and my nature is Anxity,I was taking medicin From Physcology doctor and still i am facing problem,can i take Manasamtra vati.

  84. Dear sir,

    I am taking Clobazem for anxiety(especially social) and Opiprol for Depression for the last 4 years (other Allopathic medicine had also tried ) and my problem still exists and my Dr Says I have Major depressive disorder.I want to stop all allopathic drugs very gradually after having Ayurveda .

    Now I had a consultation of BAMS Dr and he has given Dabur stresscom (Ashwagandha -300mg per capsule) 1-1-1 and MMV 0-0-1.What I am doubting is ,I know the Ashwagandha and MMV are good for anxiety and what about MMV and Ashwagandha for Depression; Is it really effective for Depression(major) and ‘Social’ Anxiety?

    Thanks in advance

  85. dear sir i am suffering from ocd 3 years and now was taking allopathy and due to counsellor advise left this tab in last 4 month and facing some withdrawal symptom last week i started patanjali course 7 days before but my cousler advise me to take mansamitra she discussed with one Ayurvedic doctor for me he suggested mansamitra but when i saw review i am scare so can you suggest me what should i do or if you have any right person details who know very much in ocd so please suggest

  86. Sir,

  87. Vighneshwar hebbar says:

    Hi…sir I have obessive compulsive disorder I consulted ayurvedic doctor one week before and they suggested mahakalyanaka ghruta,m anasamitra various,and himasagara taila.d ear sir, how does it works on ocd? In how many days I can get re from ocd?

  88. Vighneshwar hebbar says:

    Hi sir, I have ocd problem since many years.Recently I met one ayurvedic doctor and he prescribed manasamitra vati and another one gruta and himasagara how many days I can get cure?

  89. I HV been prescribed manasamitra vatakam of 1 tablet each morning and evening (4pm). I HV just recovered from acute liver bout of hepatitis and no stool formation for days. Is this doze OK?

  90. Is it good to have manasamitravatakam only when you feel anxious and depressed instead of taking them daily. I find relief after one or two hours after taking this medicine.

    • Yes, it can be taken occasionally.

      • Varsha vinay says:

        My patient is taking escitalopram 40 mg per day plus lithium 800mg per day and sodium valproate 600 mg.Now I want to include manasamitra vatakam one tablet per day to reduce side effects of english medicine. In that case how much escitalopram i have to reduce

        • Hi, it appears that the patient has severe psychiatric symptoms. In such a situation, dropping any medicine even by half a tablet can worsen the symptoms. I would recommend including manasamitra vatakam while continuing all other medicines for 6 weeks time and then if there is very good improvements, only then I would think of cutting down on escitalopram.

  91. dr sir will this medication cure or control my generalised anxiety/biolgical anxiety and if yes then in how much time?is this medication effective like allopathic ones?

  92. Navyugsood says:

    How much mg of manasamitra vatkam to replace clonzepam 3mg sir?

  93. Dear Sir,

    My husband had a cerebral haemorrhage in 2012 and he was operated. He had lost sensation on his left side. But after doing physiotherapy, he has regained 70% of the movements. He is on levipill 500 twice a day. Off late, he isolates himself and does not interact with anyone. I am not sure if it is depression as such, since we did consult a neuro psychiatrist and he has ruled out the possibility of depression. He is not on any other tablet. Can he use this medicine? Will it improve his condition?

  117. my panic disorder treatment has been going on for months from a vaidya. i am on sri sri Narayana kalpa, manasmitra vatkam(I took this for 6 months ..which has been stopped yesterday), my vaidya started geriforte from yesterday and i asked him that if i could take divya medha vati along with it, he said yes. now i am wondering what if divya medha vati will reduce the effect of manasmitra vatkam which i took for 6 months or can i take it with these all medicines which i mentioned above?

  118. Dear doctor,

    After year of meditation I gained strong pressure in head , I read that Manasamitra could help. Should I try with it?

    • You can. Just 1 tablet at night after food for a month time.
      But better thing to do would be to
      1. Correct the meditation process under an able Guru.
      2. Consult a good Ayurveda specialist directly and get treated.

    Namaskar, I am a student living in hostel, preparing for competitive will be very kind of you if u could answer my queries.. Failure in exam and some group issues have also affected me emotionally.. I am having very poor concentration and frequently get into painful thinking cycle at the end of which i feel exhausted, emotionally spent, headache.. My exams are near so one of friend suggested me to take manasmitravatakam (emotional issue) along with brahmi vati (from exam performance point of view) . SO I had taken manasmitravatakam for 3 days along with exercise and felt better.. But when i discontinued again my mind get into trouble with slight thoughts of earlier mentioned issues if i dont consciously focus on other things or distract myself with something entertaining.. . I want to know is it bcoz i did not take medicine – does this tablet shows effect in 1-2 days (felt better when took tablet) or can it be due to other factors in those 3 days… Should I continue with it? take both or just brahmi vati? Will there be any side effect if i take them or nt take them on exam day (emotional, temperament level – from exam points of view) How should I take them?
    Sorry for the long post..

  120. Hi Dr Hebbar,
    I have social anxiety and lacks confidence in many occasions. I have used escitalopram for 5 years(nexito plus) felt good during initial four years period. Wanted to get rid of that as the effectiveness reduced by around 5 years and consulted Ayurvedic doctor at a nearby clinic. He suggested Manasamitra vatakam, Kalyana grita for a period of 3 months. Along with this used Mentat 1 tab a day. I didn’t find any major improvement. The doctor suggested me to stop the medicine after 6 months (6 bottles of Kalyana grita) and adviced me stating that these are just thoughts in mind and I need to get rid of it. I don’t think my stage is where a normal advice can help as social anxiety and lack of confidence is true experience for me. Doctor advised to stop the medications. As the issue was still pressurising I continued with mentat for another few months. Without cure, I consulted a homeopathic doctor and is on his medication. I see only very little improvement and want to avoid long term side effects by using only Ayurveda. But none of the above except escitalopram gave me complete recovery especially during the initial period of use. Please advice.

  121. Hi,

    My 15 years old daughter is diagnosed having ADHD. Can manasamitra work and cure it completely? If not then can you suggest something else? How long and when to take suggested medicine?
