My younger brother is suffering from Schizophrenia (Mental Illness) for last 25 years or so and is under treatment from various psychiatrists in Delhi & Chennai etc. Though on treatment for so many years english medicines have not cured him from the disease. Would like to know whether Tagara Tablets can help him .Or is there any other Ayurvedic Medicine which cures Schizophrenia.
06 Jul 2016
R.Sathyanarayanan Tagara capsules are super effective during Insomnia and Anxiety. To cure Schizophrenia follow the below procedure. Take dried Basil ( Tulsi ) Leaves and Sage Leaves. Put quarter teaspoon of Basil ( Tulsi ) Leaves and one teaspoon of Sage Leaves in cup of water. Boil on low flame for 10 minutes. Stain. Add Honey ( Shehad ). Drink it lukewarm 3 to 4 times a day.

Currently I am regularly using the sustained release sleeping pill (Allopathy).I am able to get an almost uninterrupted sleep in the night with this. Can you recommend a herbal/ayurvedic/homoeopathic or such similar type of medicine to enable me to wean away from this daily allopathic intake.

You may try Tagara capsules. These are very effective for Insomniacs. Take this for a month. Himalya Tagara is what I took for 2 months and now I sleep on my own, without any medicine. It contains Valerian which is a super effective herb to cure Insomnia. Add 2 Lavender flowers in your tea. Drink it every day. This will calm your mind and induce sleep. All the very best. I understand how frustrating it must be for you.but, relax, I am sure you will not need your allopathic pill anymore, once you start with it.

Thank you.Further,I would like to know whether I can continue taking this medicine for an indefinite period of TIME.

i have HTN and I am on Olmezest H20. Can you please let me know if i can take Tagara with this medicine?

12 Sep 2016
Tagara is not recommended if you are taking Olmezest. As both these medicines will lower the Bp. And this may worsen the condition.
And why do you want to take Tagara ? What is the disease that you wish to take it for ?

I have sleeping disorder and also of little bit of shivering hands especially when I have a very hectic schedule. Especially I feel very uncomfortable while writing something I have to make lots of efforts to write something down on a piece of paper.
Tagara has helped in my sleep but the problem with my hand is still their.
17 Oct 2016
Please mention what kind of sleeping disorder are you suffering from. Is it insomnia ? Please be specific. What sort of discomfort do you mean ? Is it your trembling hands, Or restless mind or numbness in the hands ?
Actually you need to give a detailed explanation of your problem. Do you have any problem regarding recognition of things or people ? Tagara is a super effective herb for Insomnia. In the mean time, you may take Mucuna Pruriens capsule. Take one everyday for a month. This will help you cure the trembling of Hands.

My son suffer from cyclyc vomiting for 6 years and the only medicine that helps him is the Ativan. This medicine sends him to sleep deeply for almost 14 hours. After that, he starts to feels so much better. I would like to know what kind of natural medicine can help him. The best treatment for him is a long sleep period of time.
26 Oct 2018
Ashwagandha, Brahma (Bacopa Monnieri) and Gotu Kola. Every day 3x per day. And no OTC capsule rubbish. You need the dried herb for the last two (to make an infusion (tea). Always add a drop of vinegar. Ashwagandha you need the powder. One teaspoon with a teaspoon of honey in a 1/3rd glass of warm to hot milk. All of the above should stand for at least 30 mins to an hour.

Hi I am suffering from insomnia for last couple of months like I have starting trouble I mean difficult in falling asleep once I sleep there will be no interruptions for at least 4 to 5hours. Should I take TAGARA and how much dose to be taken. Thank you from Anas Bangalore.

No, Anas. I do not think you should. Since, this is not Insomnia. You may try other options like listening to light and relaxing music, that will help you to sleep. Drink a glass of water before you go to bed.
26 Oct 2018
Try Valerian with a 1/2 tablet of 5HTP 100mg. Also insomnia becomes a major psychological problem. So forget about bed for a while which causes major anxiety. Try lying on the couch with the lights dimmed watching something really boring on TV. I find Tour de France perfect. 5 hours of cycling and no sudden noises. Give yourself plenty of time and don't say to yourself you must sleep. Say to yourself you just want to relax. You have to take the pressure off yourself.

Hi ,
I am having difficulty in falling asleep since a month. Even last 4 yrs I have been having inconsistent sleep pattern like a day or two I will not feel sleepy n sleep less, then next two days I would get deep sleep. But now its like I feel sleepy n tired but i wake up every half hpur dont gey continoys n deep sleep at all.
I took tagara at night one capsule fr 3 days but strtd feelin lethargic n hungry in day time.
Is it d side effect?
09 Dec 2016
Remi It is absolutely safe to take Tagara capsules. Take one every day for a month. Continue for 2 months. Another herb is Ashwagandha. Buy it's tincture from a homeopathic store and take 3 drops added to half glass of water for 15 days.

Since last couple of months I have not been able to sleep properly. Firstly, it is extremely difficult to sleep till about 2 am or so. there after I can sleep only for hour and half or two at the maximum. Again I am awake. Result is that my muscles do not get enough relaxation. Though I cannot say I get a pain anywhere in the body, but it is a different feeling of starving of enough rest. I have tried normal remedies of taking glass of warm milk mixed with haldi (turmeric), taking spoonful of honey with rock salt before going to bed etc. I do not take nap in the afternoons. I follow strict routine of taking dinner couple of hours before going to bed etc. I stopped watching TV, using laptop or smart phones after dinner. But I did not get any relief. I am 72 and weigh about 55 Kg. I have no BP nor sugar.

Wold it be advisable for me to take Tagara? If so, kindly advise the dosage and the period for which it should be taken. I understand that there are no side effects.

Will be grateful for an early reply

You may take Tagra capsules for a month. Take one capsule every night after dinner. The herb will calm your brain and relieve you of anxiety if any. It will take care of your sleeping disorder.
Also, i would like to suggest that you listen to some calming music or melodies once you get in your bed.
Once, your habit is formed, then you will get used to this. Try reading in bed or try different things that will help you to fall asleep, like blinking exercises. You will have to put in a little effort. All the very best.

My daughter age about 25 suffering from epilepcy since the age of 7 years. She also suffers from joint pains. Can you please prescribe the medicines for her. Epilepsy can be cured?

You may try Mucuna Pruriens capsule. Give her one every day for a month. It is highly effective herb for curing Brain disorders. Moreover, there are many types of Epilepsy ,so you will have to explain the detailed symptoms.
Spikenard and Marijuana are also very effective for curing Epilepsy. So, Cannabis Indica tincture can be given to her. 5 drops every day in a glass of water for 15 days. But, I would advise you to talk to your doctor first.

tagara is it good for sleep apnea? i have high BP of 15/100 in the early morning and I get up twice to urinate and I snore a lot. I am taking BP MEDICINE AMLO SAFE TM 40 one tablet in the morning can I take Tagara for above problems. Due to these above problems sleep is disturbed.
09 Mar 2017
This herb is used to cure High Bp, Yes.
But, the most effective herb is Giloy ( Tinospora Cordifolia )
And if you already are taking any drug for High Bp, then you must take the herb with caution. Because this can lower the blood pressure beyond the normal level.
So, either you reduce the dosage of the medicine that you already are taking.

Rakesh. This disease can be cured by speech therapy, physiotherapy, etc.
Your case needs close examination. It is suggested that you consult your health care provider in this matter. Also, I have heard that Ubiquinone may cure you. Please read about it on the internet. This can help you to some extent. all the very best Rakesh .;

What are side effects of Tagara, any problems in it's long term use in generalized anxiety disorder
Dr. Kirti Shardha ( Pune )
25 May 2017
Though Tagara is used to cure anxiety, but, if taken for a long time, it may aggravate the anxiety or uneasiness.
But, if you take it for a limited duration, as prescribed by your doctor, according to your condition, then no side effects have been reported. The generalized anxiety disorder can be cured by Kava also. Drink one cup of Kava tea everyday for a month. Do you suffer from Panic Attacks also ?
Please discuss other symptoms Riyas, so that severity of your condition can be known.

Try taking Kava tea man. It is good for all type of anxiety. I read something about Miasmic Theory. The one who has fears and anxiety is Psoric. And the treatment has to be according to the miasms accordingly.
08 Jul 2017
Kava has got side effects. Consult a doctor before using it. Ashwagandha is very useful for anxiety and mind calmness

We can not comment. Since you already are taking allopathic drugs.
You need to lower the dose or eliminate the allopathic drugs, as it may react with the herb.
