    Okay, you missed your call! I crown you a Nurse Journalist and Archivist RN. I can't get enough medical history in- obvious now after Miltown, shock therapy, and Tuskeegee why they call it "Practice." Not to derail the thread, but in the same spirit of the thread:

    I do not remember Phenobarbital in the 60's as a capsule. I use to have Epilepsy and back then I had various doses of a tablet, but never a capsule.

    What color was Miltown(Meprobamate)? It's shown a lot in old movies r/t housewives as an anxiolytic.

    White.....I remeber it as Equanil.

    I remember Thalidomide but not sure why it was given. Was it the N&V of preg. or another "nerve" pill?
