Sidhhamantra Nighantu is one such unique lexicon which has a chapter named as Tridoshaghna Varga which enlists the drugs which pacify one, two or all the three Doshas i.e., Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Drugs pacifying all the three Doshas are unique in their Rasa Panchaka in terms of specific combination of Rasa, Guna, Virya and Vipaka.
