CARTER'S LITTLE LIVER PILLS
Categories: Patent Medicines and Secret Forumla
For headache, torpid liver, constipation, and the complexion take one pill
every night. As a purgative take four to eight. Weight of twelve pills
about seven and one-half grains of which probably two to two and one-half
grains is sugar coating. They contain Podophyllin and aloes made into a
pill and coated with sugar. On the above we deduce the following formula
as closely resembling the original:
Podoph (resin) 1-1/2 grains
Aloes (Socotrine) 3-1/2 grains
Mucilage of Acacia sufficient
Mix; divide into twelve pills and coat with sugar.
The above amount would cost about 25 cents.
