Hyponidd is a herbal formulation marketed by Charak. It is indicated in PCOS for improving insulin sensitivity, thereby promoting ovulation and reduced levels of testosterone. It helps in controlling hirsutism, acne, alopecia and obesity.

Treatment Protocol
Hyponidd works very well for women with insulin-resistance. 1-2 tablets twice a day, half an hour before meals decreases gastrointestinal absorption of glucose from the meals, regulates the insulin response of the pancreas and increases peripheral utilization of glucose. A treatment protocol with Hyponidd lasting for 3-4 months restores normal ovulation in a large percentage of women.

As with any herbal medicine, every effort must be made to keep the required dosage of Hyponidd to a minimum and to avoid burdening the body with excess medication. A physician's advice is suggested when determining the dosage and duration of the treatment. When treated properly, herbal medicines should restore normalcy in the body and should be discontinued thereafter. Usage without discretion can make the patient permanently dependent on the medication. For withdrawal from using Hyponidd, include home-remedies like Fenugreek, Tulsi, etc. in the treatment protocol and follow a healthy diet and detoxification procedures and exercise regularly.
