These 16 Drug Advertisements From The Past Will Shock You. I Can’t Believe You Could Buy This Stuff.


Back in the day, companies didn’t know that much about the ingredients they were putting in their products (or they didn’t care). For instance, you could buy original 7-Up with so much lemon-lime goodness packed inside every bottle… plus, some good ole lithium! Lithium is a toxic substance that can be used to treat bipolar disorder, depression and schizophrenia. (Oops.) These advertisements were for real products you could buy. Some of these are pretty shocking, knowing what we know today.

1.) 7Up… but with lithium.

2.) Symmetrel amantadine

3.) Cogentin benztropine

4.) Cannabis tincture

5.) Cipramil citalopram

6.) Cocaine toothache drops

7.) Compazine prochlorperazine

8.) Coriforte

9.) Heroin

10.) Tofranil imipramine

11.) Loxapac loxapine

12.) Quaalude methaqualone

13.) Ritalin methylphenidate

14.) Stelazine trifluoroperazine

15.) Distaval thalidomide

16.) riavil perphenazine and amitriptyline

That’s right. Have a toothache? Try some cocaine. What about some heroin? After reading all of these advertisements I have come to one conclusion: the past sure was frightening in some ways. Do you remember seeing any ads like this?
