Research Facts
Beginning in the 19th century, patients suffering from shortness of breath could purchase anti-asthma cigarettes and powders that usually contained stramonium (stinkweed) or potash, but sometimes also included narcotics. These cigarettes contained no tobacco. Preparations such as Asthmador Cigarettes and other brands were marketed aggressively and sold over the counter in most Western countries to relieve the distress of bronchial asthmatic paroxysms. Although critics complained that these cigarettes increased bronchial inflammation, by the beginning of the 20th century, smoking was often the first line of treatment for asthmatics.

Reference Comments
"Dr. Chase's Recipes or Information for Everybody" (1862 edition), by A. W. Chase M.D.
Why the appeal? A study of almanacs advertising Dr. Chase's patent medicines, 1904–1959. Denise Maines.
Research Facts
Medication for liver and kidney -- a regulator of the liver, kidneys and bowels.
Patent medicines were advertised, and presumably consumed, with much vigour in the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
In 1904, the original product line included Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, Liver Cure, Backache Plasters, Ointment, Catarrh Cure, Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine and Kidney-Liver Pills. Somewhere between 1924 and 1927, Dr. Chase's Liniment was added to this list, and Mouthwash was sold between 1927 and 1938. Paradol, a painkiller, was introduced in the 1950s and D.M.H Cough Syrups, Cold Tablets and Enerjets emerged in 1959. Though Backache Plasters were not advertised in the 1930s, they were included in the 1950s, so that the list of medicines sold by Dr. Chase's Medicine Company in 1959 contains all of the original product line with only minor modifications to a few of these products, as well as the new arrivals.

Research Facts
Another mucilaginous herb that helps to soothe inflammation, licorice root is great for all sorts of coughs. Its mucilaginous properties make it great for dry irritated membranes, while it's also a natural expectorant, making it great for helping rid a wet productive cough of all the phlegm. Licorice root is also used in many syrups to help sweeten the flavor due to some of the bitter tasting herbs that many syrups contain.
