  地龙是我国重要的中药材之一。最早的中药学专著《神农本草经》中收载的67种动物药中就有蚯蚓。在《神农本草经》列为下品,具有清热定惊、通络、平喘、利尿的功效。常炒制后用于高热、神昏、惊痫抽搐、关节痹痛、肺热喘咳、尿少水肿、高血压等症。主含多种氨基酸。由于生品腥味太重,故入药一般需经炒制。陶弘景谓:“若服干蚓,须熬作屑”。传统用地龙,制法很多,主要有药制、醋制、熬制、酒制、油制、蛤粉炒制、盐制等法,使其质地松泡酥脆、去毒性、矫正臭味及便于煎制服用。

2.通经活络,用于痹证及半身不遂。地龙长于通行经络,用于多种原因引起的经络阻滞,血脉不畅,肢节不利之证。因其性寒能清热,故适宜治疗关节红肿疼痛、屈伸不利之热痹,常与防己、秦艽、忍冬藤等除湿热、通经络药物配伍。亦用治风寒湿痹,肢体关节麻木、疼痛、屈伸不利等症,可与川乌、天南星、乳香等配伍,如小活络丹。治疗气虚血滞,中风后经络不利、半身不遂、口眼歪斜等症,常与黄芪、当归、川芎等配伍,如补阳还五汤。
