Hi there ~

Confido is a Himalaya product and there are cases where it has been effective. It is manufactured but has ayurvedic ingredients. There are no case control studies and therefore no information as a result of the same about the side effects. I am however assuming that no medication is without side effects. I would recommend you to use the medication with utmost caution and consult your ayurvedic doctor for more expert information. I am not sure about Shilajit as I have not had a patient that used it and again I redirect you to an ayurvedic doctor for the same. Anyone, at NIMHANS in Bangalore should be a good resource person. If you are seeing anyone outside NIMHANS please contact the local state board to find out if the person claiming to be a doctor is a psychiatrist with additional qualifications or a doctor in the first place. The MCI also has a list of doctors by name. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
