  1. deadly nightshade

    Belladonna Note: '(Belladonn(1) is used to decrease gastrointestinal activity in functional bowel disorders, to delay gastric emptying, ... decrease gastric secretion, ... (and to treat) nocturnal enuresis and dysmenorrhea, which it cannot do in tolerated doses. In all of these uses it is among the least selective of antimuscarinic drugs, its wide use derives from historical precedence and habit rather than therapeutic superiority.' (SC Harvey, in AR Gennaro, Ed, Remington's Pharmaceutical Science, 18th ed, Mack Publishing Co, Easton Pa, 1990)

  2. deadly nightshade

    Belladonna, see there, Atropa belladonna
