Malvika Saini* and Naresh Kumar

Abstract

Drug toxicity is a common health problem now a day’s in population. 6% of hospital admissions and 2.5% of emergency department visits for injuries or poisonings caused due to adverse drug reactions or drug toxicity. Peptic ulcers are the most common toxic effects caused due to allopathic drugs. These toxic effects are produced as a result of continuously using some drugs, which is a major cause of mortality & morbidity among population. NSAIDs, Aspirin, Paracetamol, H2 Blockers etc. are some of the drugs which are widely used in population for getting quick results. Chronic uses of NSAIDs are major causative factors for peptic ulcers. NSAIDs are generally used for musculoskeletal problems and aspirin as anti- inflammatory in lower dose, in higher doses; it is frequently indicated for the secondary prevention of thrombotic cerebrovascular or cardiovascular disease. But they produce severe organ toxicity, especially peptic ulcers. But our Ayurveda is so vast and well developed that it provides treatment not only to fight with the disease but also to fight with toxicity produced by modern drugs. Drugs like nimba, yashtimadhu, haridra, lodhra, formulations like laghu suta shekhar ras, kamdudha ras etc. have positive effects on gastric problems specially peptic ulcers etc. The present paper deals with toxicity caused by NSAIDs & aspirin especially peptic ulcers & role of Ayurveda to curb this problem.

Keywords: Drug toxicity, NSAIDs, aspirin, gastric ulcers, Ayurveda, herbal drugs & formulations.
