Rhus Toxicodendron is a homeopathic remedy.
Homeopathic use for:
- skin rashes
- restless leg syndrome
- viral infections
- The evidence is mixed regarding the effectiveness of Rhus toxicodendron as a treatment for arthritis. A recent study in the journal Homeopathy assessed a group of rats with arthritis who were given several dilutions of this substance. The researchers found that Rhus toxicodendron protected rats from inflammatory lesions, weight changes, and radiological joint changes due to arthritis and pain (Patil, 2011).
- FDA does not evaluate over-the-counter homeopathic medications for safety. Therefore they do not offer an official list of side effects. There is anecdotal evidence of people who are highly sensitive to Rhus toxicodendron developing a rash and swelling of the lower extremities. These stories have not been corroborated or supported by the FDA.
