An antidote is an item, generally a potion, that will protect against or act as a remedy for specific ailments. Sometimes time is all that is needed for certain magical effect to wear off, such as in the case of Polyjuice Potion, but others require a special application to counteract such effects.

Behind the scenes

  • Bruise Removal Paste is described as an antidote for bruises, but arnica root gel, which is not of magical origin, will do the same thing.
  • According to W.O.M.B.A.T., it may be impossible to cure poison without the correct antidote.
  • Although Love Potions' effects wear off overtime if not continuously applied, an antidote exists for it nevertheless.
  • There is a sign at St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries reading "Antidotes are anti-don'ts unless approved by a qualified Healer."
