Vintage Drug Ads

Currently some of the following substances are in the list of 'dangerous' (I would say 'taboo') and strictly scheduled compounds and in some cases they aren't anymore used by doctors and in hospitals. However once they were openly advertised and commonly used by patients.
Go here and see other old ads of local anesthetics like novocaine (brand name of procaine), sleeping pills like placidyl and doriden or opiates like pantopon or demerol and much more...

To view an online gallery of modern and vintage psychiatric drug ads, visit the "Marvelous Mental Medicine Show" at the Bonkers Institute for Nearly Genuine Research:

Lots of interesting stuff!
