Abstract

CRITICAL REVIEW OF DIFFERENT AYURVEDIC DRUGS W.S.R. TO VISHAD (DEPRESSION)

*Dr. Prajakta Shashikant Desai and Dr. Ninad Sathe

ABSTRACT

In todays globalized era depression is estimated to affect 300million people. The world mental health survey conducted in 17 countries found that on average about 1 in 20 people reported having an episode of depression in the previous year. Depression is a common mental disorder that presents with depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, decreased energy, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, and poor concentration. Depression in Ayurveda can be compared with Vishad. Vishad is one of the Vatananatmaja Vikaras. The symptoms of Vishad which are found in various references in Indian science when compared to depression almost appear similar, so we can correlate Vishad with depression. There are some common side effects of modern anti-depressant drugs such as nausea, loss of sexual desire, fatigue and drowsiness, insomnia, blurred vision, dizziness, irritability etc. Our Ayurvedic texts has given various drugs for treatment of Vishad. Current study focuses to gather different Vishadhar drugs from different ayurvedic literatures and various research papers. A list of ayurvedic drugs having anti-depressant and related beneficial effects in treatment of depression is compiled.

Keywords: Vishad, Depression, Ayurvedic drugs, Vishadhar.
