This study analyzed the antinociceptive effects of a hydroalcoholic extract obtained from the aerial parts of Sebastiania schottiana, a Brazilian medicinal plant used to treat various painful diseases. For this purpose, the writhing test, capsaicin and formalin induced-pain in mice were used. The results showed that the hydroalcoholic extract exhibited considerable antinociception in all the models studied, being more potent than aspirin.
