When is PADMA 28 used?
PADMA 28 is used in circulatory disorders with symptoms such as a tingling sensation, formication, feeling of heaviness and tension in the legs and arms, numbness of the hands and feet and calf cramps. According to the tradition of Tibetan medicine, circulation-stimulating and anti-inflammatory effects and antibacterial properties in respiratory-tract infections are attributed to the camphor recipes on which Padma 28 is based.
When must PADMA 28 not be used or used only with caution?
PADMA 28 must not be used in patients with known hypersensitivity to one of the ingredients or one of the excipients (see ‘What is contained in PADMA 28?’).
Inform your doctor, your pharmacist or your druggist if you are suffering from other diseases, have any allergies or are taking other medication (including medicinal products bought over the counter!).
May PADMA 28 be taken during pregnancy or breast-feeding?
According to experience to date, if the medication is used in accordance with the instructions there is no known risk for the unborn child. However, systematic scientific studies have never been carried out. As a precaution, you should avoid taking any kind of drugs during pregnancy and breast-feeding or ask your doctor, your pharmacist or your druggist for advice.
How do you use PADMA 28?
Adults: Unless otherwise prescribed by the doctor, start the treatment with 2 capsules/tablets 3 times a day, taken with ample fluid 30 minutes to 1 hour before meals. As soon as there is definite improvement the dosage can be reduced to 1 to 2 capsules/tablets per day. Persons who have difficulty swallowing should suspend the contents of the capsules / the tablets in lukewarm water. The tablets may also be chewed. It is recommended to drink a large glass of boiled, lukewarm water afterwards. If taking PADMA 28 on an empty stomach is a problem for you, you may take it with your meals instead.
The optimal dosage is dependent on your state of health, your physical constitution and your age. In general an older person with a symptomatic vascular disease requires a higher dosage than a younger person with mild or beginning symptoms.
Turn to a specialist for your individual medical treatment. If PADMA 28 has been prescribed for you by your doctor, any adjustment of the dosage should be discussed with him/her. If your condition deteriorates, you must consult a doctor.
