The present investigation was carried out to found the analgesic effect of ethanolic extract of flowers of Celosia argentea in experimental animal model of pain. The analgesic activity was evaluated by acetic acid induced writhing method and by tail flick latency method in albino mice respectively. The percentage protection against writhing method showed by ethanolic extract of Celosia argentea in doses of 200 & 400mg/kg, p.o. was 24.12 & 29.60 respectively. In the tail flick model, the ethanolic extract of Celosia argentea in the above doses increased the pain threshold significantly and showed the basal reaction time of 10 & 14.25 sec respectively at third hour.
