Triphala is useful in an overall support for your digestive function.
Medication must always be taken as advised by your medical practitioner/physician. If you are unsure, then please contact your physician for precise instructions. On the other hand, the medicine label usually contains dosage instructions which also may be followed.
Triphala may be taken with a meal to prevent stomach problems.
A full glass of water when taken with Triphala always ensures better absorption.
Medications are prescribed according to a dosage schedule which must be completed in order to reap the benefits of the treatment. Lapsed schedules render Triphala ineffective. So, never stop in between unless advised by your physician.
One of the best ways to ensure that you do not miss out on a dose is to maintain a fixed regime for consuming Triphala each day.
Drug Class and Mechanism
TRIPHALA comes under hypoglycemic agent and is a composite herbal preparation containing the equal proportions of the fruits of Emblic officinalis, Terminalia belliric and Terminalia chebula, the three myrobalans.
You must maintain a schedule for taking the medicine at the same time each day so that you do not miss out on any doses. But, in the advent of a missed dose, take it as soon as you remember so that you can compensate for the loss of the dose.
But, then you may need to adjust your remaining doses accordingly. And if it is almost time for the next dose, then please skip the missed dose and continue with the normal schedule.
Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects.
Triphala must be stored at a cool and dark place that prevents it from direct exposure to sunlight. It should also be protected from kids and pets. You can store it at room temperature.
If you are allergic to any ingredient in Triphala (you may check medicine label) then please do not use it without consulting your doctor.
If you are planning to have a baby or are pregnant already then you must seek advice from your doctor before using Triphala. Discuss the effects and possible risks that Triphala usage may have on the unborn baby.
If you are breast feeding your child, then too seek medical advice before using Triphala. Some drugs may be excreted in the breast milk and may harm the baby.
