Research Facts
Metronidazole, marketed under the brand name Flagyl among others, is an antibiotic and antiprotozoal medication.[3] It is used either alone or with other antibiotics to treat pelvic inflammatory disease, endocarditis, and bacterial vaginosis.[3] It is effective for dracunculiasis, giardiasis, trichomoniasis, and amebiasis.[3] It is an option for a first episode of mild-to-moderate Clostridium difficile colitis if vancomycin or fidaxomicin is unavailable.[3][4] Metronidazole is available by mouth, as a cream, and intravenously.[3]
Poulenc Limited became Rhone-Poulenc after 1990, thus the cards cannot be any older.

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.

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.
