Re: The Holy Grail? -Desoxyn Journal

I collect vintage psychiatric pharmaceutical ads (yes, I know, I have odd fixations). I thought you guys might find this interesting...

Here is a photo of some of the stimulant ads in my collection. To the right, you will see an ad for Desoxyn (you may also notice ads for Dexedrine, Dexamyl, and a vintage Benzedrine inhaler)...





Among the information in the ad is this paragraph...

SMALLER DOSAGE, LONGER EFFECT - It is generally agreed that d-desoxyephedrine, milligram for milligram, is somewhat more potent than amphetamine, so the stimulation desired is achieved with a smaller dose, the onset of effect is more rapid, and the duration longer.

Hmmm... Not much has changed.
