Nux vomica is a plant. The seed is used to make medicine.

Despite serious safety concerns, nux vomica is used for diseases of the digestive tract, disorders of the heart and circulatory system, diseases of the eye, and lung disease. It is also used for nerve conditions, depression, migraineheadache, symptoms of menopause, and a blood vessel disorder called Raynaud's disease.

Other uses include treatment of “tired blood” (anemia), as a tonic, and as an appetite stimulant.

Men use nux vomica for erectile dysfunction (ED, impotence).

In manufacturing, nux vomica is used as rat poison. That’s because it contains strychnine and brucine, two deadly chemicals.

How does it work?
Nux vomica contains strychnine and other chemicals that affect the brain and cause muscle contractions. This can lead to convulsions and death. Strychnine in amounts that are too small to produce symptoms can still be a serious problem. Small amounts of strychnine build up in the body with continued use, especially in people with liver disease. This can cause death in a period of weeks. Strychnine poisoning can be detected with laboratory tests.

Insufficient Evidence for:
Erectile dysfunction (ED, impotence).
Diseases of the stomach and intestines.
Heart and blood system disorders.
“Tired blood” (anemia).
Diseases of the eye.
Nerve disorders.
Lung disease.
Stimulating the appetite.
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of nux vomica for these uses.
