Uses

Mezereum has been used in the past for treating rheumatism and indolent ulcers, but because of its toxic nature it is no longer considered to be safe. The plant contains various toxic compounds, including daphnetoxin and mezerein, and these are currently being investigated for their anti-leukaemia effects.The bark is cathartic, diuretic, emetic, rubefacient, stimulant and vesicant. The root bark is the most active medically,but the stem bark is also used. It has been used in an ointment to induce discharge in indolent ulcers and also has a beneficial effect upon rheumatic joints. The bark is not usually taken internally and even when used externally this should be done with extreme caution and not applied if the skin is broken. The bark is harvested in the autumn and dried for later use.The fruits have sometimes been used as a purgative.A homeopathic remedy is made from the plant. It is used in the treatment of various skin complaints and inflammations.
