Abstract

EFFECT OF VATARAKTAHARA CAPSULES IN VATARAKTA WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO HYPERURICEMIA

Dr. Bharti*, Dr. Subhash Sharma, Dr. Anjana Mishra and Prof. Y. K. Sharma

ABSTRACT

Hyperuricemia/gout is a commonest form of inflammatory arthritis affecting elderly but it appears to be poorly managed due to absence of sufficient treatment strategies and guidelines. Incidence and prevalence of gout has been increased due to either faulty life styles or due to the adverse effect of certain drugs. Both Diagnosis and treatment poses a challenge due to its remittent nature. In Ayurveda, several medicinal plants have been described and used in the management of gout (Vatarakta) due to their anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. The present study was done to assess the effect of trial formulation Vataraktahara Capsules on the patients of Vatarakta. Drug was given to thirty patients for 2 months after the written informed consent. The effect of trial formulation was obtained after statistical analysis of the data obtained. Study showed highly significant results in criteria Sandhi Shoola, Sandhi Shotha, Sparsha Asahyata, Raga, Vidaha and Stabdhata with p<0.001. In Shithilta, significant improvement was recorded (p<0.01). In Tvak Vaivarnyata, 100% relief was noted. Insignificant improvement (p>0.05) was seen in Hritspanda. No effect was found in Sandhi Vikriti. 18.92% reduction of serum uric acid was recorded after the trial with highly significant result. So can be concluded that the trial formulation, Vataraktahara Capsules contains Guggulu, Guduchi, Trifla etc. which is a good combination of Vedanasthapana, Rasayana, Shothaghna, Mutral, Deepan and Amapachak Dravyas, hence quite effective in gout to lower the symptoms and frequency of gout flares without any side effects.

Keywords: Hyperuricaemia, Gout, Sandhi, Vatarakta, Vedanasathapan.
