ABSTRACT

Insomnia is one of the most common sleep disorders around the world. In this present study we evaluate the crude ethanol and aqueous extract of stem of Abutilon indicum, a medicinal plant which is laxative, anticonvulsant, diuretic, etc., using phenobarbitone-induced sleeping time test in mice. Ethanol extract produced a significant (p>0.05) and dose dependent reduction in the onset of sleeping and aqueous extract of 100 mg/kg and 200 mg/kg was significant in prolonging the sleeping time. These results suggest that the fraction obtained from the aqueous extract of stem of Abutilon indicum posses sedative activity may further lead to the pharmacological and pharmacokinetics of the plant to a useful sedative in future.
