The Italian adventurer Casanova (1725–1798) is often quoted as saying: "In wise hands, poison is medicine. In foolish hands, medicine is a poison." Such is the case with over-the-counter (OTC) drugs—those medicines found on shelves in drugstores, convenience stores, and supermarkets. The sale of nonprescription drugs, vitamins, and herbal dietary supplements is a multi-billion dollar industry. Improper use of these medications, however, can be dangerous. Some individuals take OTC drugs not for medical reasons but for recreational use. In other words, they take the drugs to get high. Official Drug Name: Anti-allergy ...
of questionable effectiveness sold under a variety of names and labels. The term "patent medicine" is somewhat of a misnomer because, in most cases, although many of the products were trademarked , they were never patented (most avoided the patent process so as not to reveal products' often hazardous and questionable ingredients). Perhaps the only "patent medicine" ever to be patented was Castoria . In ancient times, such medicine was called nostrum remedium ("our remedy" in Latin ). The name patent medicine has become particularly associated with the sale of drug compounds in the nineteenth ...

Patent medicines are named after the “letters patent” granted by the English crown. The first “letters patent” given to an inventor of a secret remedy was issued during the late 17th century. The patent granted the medicine maker a monopoly over his particular formula. The term “patent medicine” came to describe all pre-packaged medicines sold “over-the-counter” without a doctor’s prescription. In the United States very few preparations were ever actually patented. Many of the earliest English patent medicines, such as Turlington’s Balsam of Life, Bateman’s ...

I'm looking for amusing phrases that could be found on old health tonic/elixir advertisements. They don't have to be real, just funny. Example: "Most beneficial for the humors!"

Does anyone know what is Lydia Pinkham and if its true it can help ...
Lydia Pinkham is an "herbal remedy" that is supposed to enhance fertility. There is some speculation that it could increase your chances of conceiving a girl, if you are hoping for a daughter. Although you've likely never heard of her, in the 1880s Lydia Pinkham was a household name. Lydia began selling her home-brewed herbal remedy to make ends meet after her wealthy husband went bankrupt, and developed a patent medicine empire. In an age when women were second-class citizens, Lydia Pinkham not only succeeded in a man's world, she became a business magnate. In the field of marketing, she is considered a ...
