An antidote is a substance, generally a potion, that will protect against or act as a remedy for specific ailments.[1] 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. Antidotes are essential study for Aurors.[2] The Mandrake forms an essential part of most antidotes.[3] 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."[4]
