Research Facts
Fulford Dodds Limited also produced the popular patent medicine, Dr. William's Pink Pills for Pale People.
By the 1970s, Dodd's Kidney Pills were made with ammonium chloride. Before this, they were made with potassium nitrate, sodium bicarbonate, soap, hard paraffin, wheat flour, powedered turmeric, jalap resin, and extract of cascarilla.
Dodds still existed as of 2008 as a patent medicine, though was no longer advertised as a kidney remedy, but relief of back pain and inflammation.
