Dear Bhaskar P
Yes you can take Arjuna, as you get better, please reduce the Allopathy. To see its action, take it for 15 to 20 days. You better buy the tincture from a Homeoapthy Shop. That is much better and might help you better than Arjuna shall. Always consult a doctor before taking any kind of medication.
