Vintage Item - Limited Availability

Used to combat paralysis in the late 19th century, Elixir of Iron, Quinine and Strychnine was quite commonly available. The exceptional tonic made from these ingredients might also have been toxic if used inappropriately as strychnine is a deadly poison. However, used properly it could stimulate physiologic systems in the human body and save lives.

This neat label from the early days of telephone was for just such a tonic. It reads:

ELIXIR IRON, QUININE AND
STRYCHNINE N.F.
Average adult dos: 1 teaspoonful 3 times a day 1/2 hour
before meals, in a little water. Do not take if markedly
dark in color.
WARNING: Do not take more than the dosage recom-
meded. Frequent or continued use is to be avoided
and its use for children and elderly persons may be
especially dangerous.
