• No I haven't. But I do know some things about belladona. It's the latin name of a toxic plant commonly referred to as deadly nightshade. It's main active alkaloid, atropine, is used to dilate the pupils (for eye surgery). However, in the 1700s - 1800s, women would squeeze the juice of the berries into the eyes (to dilate the pupils) because they thought that it made them more attractive. If ingested, belladona can cause hallucinations, elevated heart rate, loss of coordintaion, flushing, fever, dry mouth, urinary retention, coma and death. Hope that might help?
  • No its not by prescription in the US. Its an unregulated herbal.
