Antimony is a metallic chemical element (atomic number 51). Although it is poisonous and causes symptoms similar to arsenic poisoning, it is far less toxic than most heavy metals. As a result, it is an ingredient in some pharmaceuticals, particularly those that are used against parasites, or in emetics.
