TRIPHALA is very useful in providing overall support for the digestive function.
Following the dosage instructions of your doctor is the best way to use any medication. If you are unsure or do not remember the instructions then you may read the medicine label for more detailed information.
Take TRIPHALA with a meal.
Please drink a full glass of water or milk with TRIPHALA.
It is very important that you complete the dosage schedule and do not interrupt it in between without seeking prior consultation from your doctor.
Taking your medication at the same time each day is a tried and tested method to avoid missing any doses.
Drug Class and Mechanism
TRIPHALA falls under hypoglycemic agent and it is a composite herbal preparation containing equal proportions of the fruits of three myrobalans: Emblica officinalis, Terminalia chebula and Terminalia bellirica.
Despite your best attempts at remembering, if you still miss out on a dose, then take it as soon as you remember about it. But keep in mind that you will have to adjust your next dose by spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. If this is not possible, then the best thing to do would be to skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosage schedule.
Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects.
Store TRIPHALA at room temperature(read medicine label if unsure). Always keep it in a cool dark place that is not directly exposed to sources of heat or moisture and sunlight. Protect it from kids and pets.
Doctors advise against using TRIPHALA if you are allergic to any ingredient in it or if you have conditions like hypertension.
If you are expecting a child or are planning to have a child in the near future, then consult your doctor before using TRIPHALA to discuss any possible threats to the unborn baby.
If you are a nursing mother and breast feed your baby, then too, seek consultation before using TRIPHALA as some drugs are excreted in the breast milk and may enter the baby.
