Anitikamnian Chemical Company. Window Through Time
The Deadly Pain Medicine Sold by Skeletons. Bess Lovejoy
Research Facts
Antikamnia varied over time, its principal ingredient was always acetanilide, a coal tar derivative. Acetanilide had the unfortunate side effect of producing cyanosis, meaning it turned extremities blue from a lack of oxygen. Deaths related to the ingredient were reported as early as 1891.
The medicine was never patented and wasn’t a prescription drug, the Anitikamnia Drug Company marketed the tablets aggressively through direct mailing and promotional products to doctors in the hope that they would be persuaded to recommend it to their patients.
The tablets were marketed to treat "La Grippe, Influenza and all Grippal Conditions, Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Deep Seated Coughs, Neuroses of the Larynx etc, etc”. It was also handy to be taken as a preventative before participating in sports or even going out shopping.
Half a century later Julius Axelrod discovered that what acetanilide produces when metabolised is paracetamol, we take this medication today and it is called Tylenol. So, Antikamnia may just have been effective as a pain-killer.
