Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup; Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology.
Research Facts
The original formula was made by Mrs. Charlotte Winslow; the mother-in-law of Curtis; while she was a nurse caring for infants; many children died from this product from either designated or over dosage; contained morphine.
Exact card found on p. 19 of "American Health Quackery" by James Harvey Young; started in 1830's; in 1906 dropped "soothing" from the name and eliminated the morphine, and was a mixture of carminatives and laxatives, previously also had alcohol, morphin sulphate, aniseed, caraway, etc.; original "recipe" was: sassafrass, cedar, opium, guaiac, capsicum, ammonia, camphor, turpentine, chloroform, alcohol.
The dangers of unregulated patent medicines prompted the Canadian government to adopt drug control laws in the early 20th century.
