Jaborandi is an herb. The leaves are used to make medicine.

Despite serious safety concerns, jaborandi is used to treat diarrhea and to cause sweating.

Some people also put it in the eye to treat glaucoma.

It’s important to understand the difference between jaborandi and pilocarpine. Jaborandi itself is rarely used as a medicinal herb, but it is used in the production of pilocarpine, an FDA-approved prescription medication. Pilocarpine eye drops are used for treating glaucoma. Pilocarpine tablets are used for treating dry mouth due to radiation treatment or dry mouth and dry eyes due to a condition called Sjogren’s syndrome.

It is not known how jaborandi might work. It might stimulate saliva production, sweat, and muscle contractions in the stomach and intestines.

Insufficient Evidence for:

Diarrhea.
Glaucoma.
Causing sweating.
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of jaborandi for these uses.

Jaborandi is UNSAFE for use as a medicinal herb. A deadly dose of jaborandi is estimated to be only 5-10 grams of leaf.

Jaborandi is, however, used in the production of pilocarpine, an FDA-approved prescription medication.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Jaborandi is UNSAFE for anyone to use, but there are additional safety concerns during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Jaborandi contains chemicals that might cause birth defects or a miscarriage. Don’t take it by mouth or use it in the eyes if you are pregnant. There are also concerns that it might harm a nursing infant. Avoid using jaborandi if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
