Research Facts
Largactil is used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia and other psychotic illnesses, a typical antipsychotic. It is also used to prevent and treat nausea and vomiting, for relief of restlessness and anxiety before surgery, and to manage symptoms of mania in bipolar disorder. It is used to treat adults and children. In children it is most commonly used for nausea and vomiting, to calm them before surgery and in some cases for behavioral issues.
Poulenc Limited became Rhone-Poulenc after 1990, thus the cards cannot be any older.

Drug used in this ECT demonstration is Methitural (INN; Neraval, Thiogenal), or methitural sodium, also known as methioturiate, is a barbiturate derivative which was marketed in the 1950s in Europe (in Germany and Italy) as an ultra-short-acting intravenous anesthetic.
From the booklet: methitural sodium is a new ultrashort-acting thiobarbiturate used as a pre-treatment anesthetic, offers several advantages as adjunctive therapy. It greatly reduces the incidence of apnea, allays apprehension, shortens recovery time and provides for a prompter, calmer awakening after treatment. Dr. John Wallace (Jack) McDougall (1912-1999).

Research Facts
Nembutal is a barbiturate, a type of drug which depresses certain brain function. Nembutal was often used to treat sleep disorders and help induce sleep or relax patients, and to induce hypnosis. If too much of the drug is taken, a patient could stop breathing and die of an overdose. Because of this risk, barbiturates, including Nembutal, have been taken out of regular medical use over the past twenty years. However, it is often used in executions in the United States for capital punishment, as well as in assisted suicide.
Nembutal was synthesized at Abbott Laboratories in 1930 by Volwiler and Tabern.
Marilyn Monroe is believed to have died from an overdose of Nembutal.
Nembutal was also used as a basal anaesthetic, and, combined with other drugs, for childbirth. It reportedly did not have a bad taste aside from being slightly bitter, and patients complained little about it in that regard.
