Passionflower is commonly used to treat nervous conditions. It is of value in the treatment of insomnia, aiding the transition into a restful sleep without any hangover effect the following day. It may be of value in alleviating anxiety and panic attacks. Passionflower may be used wherever an antispasmodic action is required, e.g. in Parkinsons disease, asthma, seizures and hysteria, such as grief. It also provides effective pain relief in neuralgia and shingles.
