Clinical information:

In the order of Apocynaceae there are a number of plants which we use as medicines. Among these may be mentioned Apocynum cannabinum and rosaemifolium, Gelsemium sempervirens, Vinca minor, Oleander, Nux vomica, Ignatia, Curare, Alstonia scholaris, and Spigelia. By some authorities Gelsemium, Nux vomica, Ignatia, Curare, and Spigelia have been included in another order, the Loganiaceae. This order of plants is very poisonous; they depress the nervous system, causing prostration, and even narcosis and paralysis; some of them cause death.
