REAL Antique Cocaine Prescription! Yes, back in the day, Cocaine was legal! (Actually, cocaine still has medicinal value in certain limited hospital settings and can still be legally used as a surgical anesthetic in certain patients. However, today it is no longer legally dispensed at your local retail pharmacy for patients to use at home.) Cocaine was usually prescribed by doctors for patients who had mouth or dental pain. It was also used to relieve eye pain. It acts as a local anesthetic to relieve pain. It was also used for a wide variety of things from dermatology, to cure dandruff and even as a medicine for vomiting.
This rare antique cocaine Rx was written in 1920. This patient was to "apply as directed for toothache".
