Hi Jas,

Laudanum was the name given to tinctures of opium. The main active ingredients were morphine, codeine and alcohol.

Smelling salts consisted of salts of ammonium. They had a very pungent smell and were used to 'revive' a lady who had fainted.

Early treatments for anxiety...



The bromides... used in vast quantities before the introduction of the barbiturates

Hyoscine (still used to prevent motion sickness)

chloral hydrate (from the 1800s)

Barbiturates.. the first was barbitone (Veronal)... so named because Verona was said to be a peaceful town.

Meprobamate (Equanil/Miltown) from the 1950s.
