• Adhatoda is an important Ayurvedic medicine used in the treatment of cough, asthma, bronchitis and colds.

• Traditional use further includes fever, dysentery, diarrhoea, jaundice, tuberculosis and headache.

• Preliminary evidence suggests that adhatoda may have bronchodilator activity and inhibit allergen-induced bronchoconstriction; however, clinical studies are unavailable to determine clinical significance.

• Antitussive effects comparable to those of codeine have also been reported in animal studies in which cough has been peripherally induced.

• Adhatoda has been used to stimulate the birthing process and aid healing afterwards and may have abortifacient activity.

• Overall, little clinical evidence is available, so much of the available information is speculative and based on in vitro and animal research and traditional use.
