Schizonepeta

Background

Schizonepeta is a plant. The parts that grow above the ground are used to make medicine.

Schizonepeta is used for the common cold, fever, sore throat, pain, eczema (atopic dermatitis), psoriasis, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
When taken by mouth: There isn't enough information to know if schizonepeta is safe or what the side effects might be. When taken at high doses, schizonepeta is POSSIBLY UNSAFE and might damage the liver.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn't enough reliable information to know if schizonepeta is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Effectiveness

NatMed Pro rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate.
Likely effective Effectiveness definitions
Possibly effective Effectiveness definitions
Likely ineffective Effectiveness definitions
Possibly ineffective Effectiveness definitions
Insufficient evidence Effectiveness definitions
  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis). Some research shows that schizonepeta in combination with 9 other herbs (Zemaphyte, Phytopharm Plc.) might reduce redness and irritation in people with eczema. However, other research shows no effect.
  • Common cold.
  • Fever.
  • Sore throat.
  • Psoriasis.
  • Abnormally heavy bleeding during menstrual periods (menorrhagia).
  • Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of schizonepeta for these uses.

Dosing & administration

The appropriate dose of schizonepeta depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for schizonepeta. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
