French Coramine Medicine Bottle in Box (Overdose Treatment)
Vintage French Coramine medicine bottle in box with a leaflet. It was used as cardiotonic drug (supposed to support the heart in the event of heart failure) and treatment for poisoning by narcotics and barbiturates, medical countermeasure against tranquilizer overdoses, shock / trauma, flu, typhoid fever, acute respiratory crises, and postpartum infection.
Theodor Morell, Adolf Hitler's personal physician, would inject him with Coramine when Hitler was unduly sedated with barbiturates. In addition, Morell would use Coramine as part of an all-purpose "tonic" for Hitler.
The bottle and leaflet are in good shape, but the cardboard box shows some wear. I am unsure when this dates to, but it came with other medicines that date to the 1930s. The bottle stands a little over 2 3/4" tall.
