I am trying to help someone identify a medication from their childhood (1950's). All I know is it was a bright blue (aqua?) liquid medication, possibly in a clear bottle. It tasted similar to Turpin hydrate. She remembers her father gave it to her for anxiety, but we don't know If that was it's purpose.
Any advice would be great. Thanks.
Since turpin hydrate tasted like booze we can assume that it was an elixir. I don't remember meds from the early 50s but the one thing that comes to mind is Lydia pinkims. I don't know what was in it by the 50s, but at one time it had opiates in it and was used by women for nerves. The original mothers little helper.
