Interesting Medications from the Past
Treatments from our great granny's time, very effective medication!
bottle of Bayer's heroin. Between 1890 and 1910, heroin was sold as a
non-addictive substitute for morphine. It was also used to treat
children who had a strong cough.
Coca Wine was one of a huge variety of wines with cocaine on the
market. Everybody used to say that it would make you happy and it
would also work as a medicinal treatment.
Wine (1875) was the most famous coca wine of it's time. Pope Leo XIII
used to carry one bottle with him all the time. He awarded Angelo
Mariani (the producer) with a Vatican gold medal.
Produced by Maltine Manufacturing Company of New York. It was suggested that you should take a full glass with, or after, every meal. Children should take half a glass.
A Paper Weight
A paper weight promoting C. F. Boehringer & Soehne (Mannheim, Germany). They were proud of being the biggest producers in the world of products containing Quinine and Cocaine.
Opium for Asthma
Cocaine Tablets (1900)
All stage actors, singers, teachers and preachers had to have them for a maximum performance. Great for "smoothing" the voice.
Cocaine Drops for Toothache
Very popular for children in 1885. Not only did they relieve the pain, they made the children happy!
Opium for Newborns
I'm sure this would make them sleep well
(not only the Opium, but the 46% alcohol!!)
