- - Summary of audio segment: We still have some remedies like bromo quinine and old cough syrups that are still available; people used to use turpentine drops on a sugar cube for colds and hay fever, but that was taken off the market for safety; we had mustard plasters for backs, only one available now. There is a laxative syrup people still ask for; we used to go to Newark to pick up leeches which were used for black eyes; not had a request for that for a while; Petty Drugs there handled leeches; last time I went was 1986.
