The study was designed as open, randomized-comparative clinical trial. Subjects were randomly allocated from Ajmal Khan Tibbiya College & Hospital, either from IPD or OPD. The treatment period of test drug was six weeks. The study was divided into six visits (7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, 35th, 42th wks) with weekly follow up.
