Gyanendra kumar Gupta, Gagan Devi


Clinical trials have shown that antipsychotic drugs alone have limited longterm efficacy. Moreover, they often have adverse side effects including dependency, drowsiness, impaired cognition and memory and sexual dysfunction. The present study was aimed at setting up a standard profile of Kalyanaka Ghrita  and Sarpagandhadi yoga which was prepared using pharmacognostically authenticated raw drugs followed by subjecting it to detailed pharmacognostical analysis as per standard protocol.
