It can be used for sleep disorders (especially insomnia), anxiety, restlessness, agitation, allergic reactions, skin problems, mild seizures, and fever.

Diabetes patients can also use it to lower their blood glucose levels but the patient must not take it with any other hypoglycemic drug and monitor their sugar levels vigilantly as skullcap is notorious for dangerously inducing hypoglycemia (low sugar level).
