Achyranthes aspera L. (Family: Amaranthaceae) is widely used as a medicinal plant. The hydroalcholic extract of Achyranthes aspera L. leaves was screened for its analgesic activity. The dose (200 mg/kg) was tested for analgesic activity using hot plate and Tail flick test in albino mice. The hydroalcholic extract of Achyranthes aspera L. leaves showed maximum analgesic activity in hot plate at reaction time 120 min (7.40±0.08) and tail flick method at reaction time 120 min (6.9±0.06). These study suggest that the hydroalcholic extract of Achyranthes aspera L. could be considered as potential analgesic agent.
