A botanical pill with the name of ‘Caripill’ was launched by Micro Labs Ltd, which increases the platelet count in dengue fever patients. Scientific and regulatory authorities have approved the drug which is made from the extract of carica papaya leaf. The clinical trials showed no side-effects of the Caripill tablets.

Positive results were shown by the drug with an effective decrease in haemorrhage condition, claimed the lab. In addition, patients did not require the blood transfusion process which is almost mandatory for dengue patients as they require platelets from donor’s blood.

Caripill is considered, with scientific support, to increase the platelet count in dengue fever patients. Since the drug is considered to be effective in treating dengue fever, lab is sure that it can also be helpful in treating diseases like leukaemia where chemotherapy is required which leads to loss of platelets.

Caripill is now available at all major pharmacies across India costing Rs 25 per tablet with a dosage of one tab (1100 mg) three times a day, for five days.

Delhi has witnessed a sudden increase in dengue cases this year as compared to past five years which has claimed 11 lives so far. World Health Organisation stated that dengue fever, globally, is becoming a serious health problem.

    I am NOT HAPPY.There is no relief.There is NO increament of
    platelets after using the medicine.Before the treatment ,my Platelets count was
    1 Lakh.Then after looking at the press release of Micro labs,I started using
    Caripill for 7 and half days ,2 caps per day and one on the eighth day on
    Doctor’s advice.After the treatment is over,I got tested my blood sample and it
    is only 1 Lakh.To verify the doubt,I got tested the blood sample and it is
    again 1L Lakh only.So now,shoild I ask the Druggists to ‘revisit’ their claim?
    or they will again thoroughly ‘test’ the medicine and come to the market??

      What if it stabilised your platelet count for those 7 and half days. In other words, it might have compensated further loss.

        we all are talking about cures and symptoms, but is there anyone doing anything about the precautions?. People are ending up dead…there ain’t no point talking to the labs manufacturing em, cuz to be frank its their business..somewhere or the other we do have to reply on Ayurveda for the cure, and if we Indians cant do it than how can we reply on foreign countries??

        • Abhijit Parial

          It’s not a cure if it targets only platelet count. Does this remove the virus?? Papaya leaf juice +a lot of watrr helps. If you have not seen a doctor, go see one asap. You also need to address your diet if the intermittent fever has gone and your platelets have not receeded…

    • Hebziba Christopher

      I have no connection with Micro Lab Ltd. But would like to know more about the dengue remedy.

      SIr , actually a point here , best i know in case of dengue (as couple of my friends are found positive in dengue ) once the platelets count reached below 1.5 Lakh . It continues to decrease untill some external remedy or death . How come in your case , it didn’t dipped below 1 Lakh and that surprisingly for 7 and half days ?
      In dengue it’s not possible without extra remedy !!
      either the capsules worked or you might took any other extra remedies . In any case please let me know how you maintained that 1 lakh for 7 and half days ? as in dengue that 1 lakh count reaches to below 35 thousand in just 12-14 hours untill/unless you take doctor assistance .

      • Sourav Singh
