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.

Research Facts
This bottle contained an extract of valerian, a root used to treat insomnia. It has also been used to treat anxiety, headaches, hysterical states, and muscle or joint pain. It was prepared by John Howarth, a druggist in Toronto until 1890. His son, Samuel Howarth, continued the business until his death in 1909. Presumably, this bottle predates the death of John Howarth in 1890. It also contains some dried residue that has stained the bottle.
