Coffee or Tea are allowed in moderation. Plenty of milk (about 1 liter a day) and ghee are recommended to counter the stomach irritation that may be caused by Maricha. Milk and Ghee also help better absorption of TANTU PASHAN. The patients are free to take their normal diet when maintenance dose is given.
If the patient is taking any anticonvulsant the same has to be continued along with Tantu Pashan therapy till appreciable results are noticed. Anticonvulsant drugs may be gradually tapered off as improvement with Tantu Pashan is noticed.
