Vitiligo, white patches on hands, feet, elbows. Taking psorid capsules, ashwgandha. Side effects?

Hi, I am having vitiligo from last 18 years. I have white patches on my hands, feet , knees, elbows, waist bone area and few more small dots here and there. The treatment which i am taking right now from last 3-4 months is Psorid capsule one daily and application of Picon cream daily. Also Ashwgandha Anti-Stress Capsule from Himalaya. Just want to know if there are any sever side-effects from these medicines or not. Positive result can only be seen on elbows and on my left hand.

I hope you are taking these medicines under doctor`s supervision. If not, the approach followed is not right. Almost every medicine has side-effects. Psorid capsule contains ciclosporine. Regular monitoring of kidney function and blood pressure are necessary for its continuation. Though picon has low side-effect profile. It is better to have regular follow ups with your consultant dermatologist.
