Well... I'm surprised they remembered anything at all!!!
Forget Tums & Tylenol.
Forget Aleve & Benadryl
Look at the cool stuff they had back then!
A 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 suffering with a strong cough.
Coca Wine, anyone?
Metcalf's 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.
Produced by the Maltine Manufacturing Company of New York
It was suggested that you should take a full glass with or after every meal. Children should only take half a glass.
