Bittersweet Nightshade

Solanum Dulcamara

Pharmacologists have studied bittersweet's use in herbal medicine as an internal antirheumatic, diuretic, narcotic, and sedative, and an external astringent. They find little evidence to validate any of these uses, but they find that extracts of the plant do show antibiotic activity, which explains their effectiveness in external use for sores and inflamations.

The whole plant is poisonous and should not be used without medical supervision.
