Bottle reads: REDUCING PILLS
You know what “Reducing Pills” were back in those days, don’t you? Usually dexedrines; basically what we now call amphetamines. Was also used by the military as a ‘go-pill’ during missions requiring extended alertness such as night-time bombing missions or extended combat operations.Ironically, dexedrine (and related drugs adderall, etc.) is now actually prescribed to treat ADHD.
