Q. I want to know about the side effects of Revital capsule. Since last one week I am taking this drug, 1 capsule everyday and I feel very energetic. Can you please also tell me the minimum dosage of this capsule for a person of 35 years of age?

A.  Revital is not a prescription medicine. It is an OTC (Over The Counter) product. In United States, there is a law that requires that such products should have a label indicating that the products efficacy and safety has not been scientifically studied. In India there is no such requirement. Many of such products have a placebo effect i.e. psychological impact rather than any material benefit. Unfortunately there are no regulations governing advertisements of such products in India. In my opinion a person of 35 years does not usually need any supplement.
