Lancet | Published : 1972


A pharmacist supplied to his customers Summary a "headache powder" made to his own formulation. The powder contained two drugs, phenacetin and bromide, which, though they have no place in modern therapeutics, are still obtainable without a prescription. Three patients, who had been taking these powders, were seen in hospital, and in each case the ultimate diagnosis was analgesic nephropathy and bromism. © 1972.
