It also causes immunotoxicity as well as some nonspecific signs like anorexia, insomnia, headache and lassitude.

Vomiting, Belching, Restlessness, Excessive thirst, kushta/ leprosy, Boils Body temperature increases. These are some long term hazards of parad yog in human beings which is described in ras shastriya text. History of long term exposure of mercury, signs and symptoms of chronic toxicity and laboratory investigations for mercury level in hair, blood and urine should be help to confirm the chronic mercury toxicity.
