How about using Belladonna, which is also known as Nightshade, Deadly Nightshade and Banewort. It is native to Europe and also found in Eastern US. It is highly poisonous. It induces sleep, loss of voice, fevers and rapid pulse. But in small quantities it is used in medicines as the drug Atropine. I don't know if there is an antidote. A pharmacology book should give you that info, or ask a pharmacist about Atropine. Also, if I am not confusing it with another herb, Victorian women would put the oils into their eyes to makes their pupils dilate. They thought it was becoming.
