Question
Hi,
My brother who is 26 years now is suffering from XXXXXXX Disease, now developing lack of concentration, lil violent behavior, anxiety, self talking in alone. I am consulting with doctors of neurology and psychiatry. Currently Axepta 10 mg is running twice a day for behavior control and concentration, with no hope from doctors for cure. I am reading multiple studies on internet since two years, where little hope is identified in ayurveda, by usage on ashwagandha as it regenerates dead protein cells, which reverse the HD process. Can we give Ashwagandha with Axepta 10 mg. I have asked with the concerned doctors, but they dont have time to respond, please suggest and guide, we are really tense

Brief Answer:
You can give Ashwagandha with Axepta.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mr XXXXXXX

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your brother's symptoms and his diagnosis.

Ashwagandha can be safely given with Axepta (Atomoxetine).

As you have rightly pointed out, there is no cure for this genetic disease in Allopathy branch. If there is some hope in Ayurveda for Huntington's disease, then, we can might as well try it.

Please keep me informed about his progress.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.

Hi Doctor,

Thanks for ur response, its of great help, will start it soon, further Is Axepta or other medicine like this is warm in nature? as Ashwagandha is warm in nature, which generates extra heat.

Further, please share your personal/ professional email I'd or contact details, will keep you updated regarding the progress, if that helps in my brothers condition, hope that can also support in improving other patients too.

Regards
