Poison Label Tinctura Belladonnae Circa 1920's Apothecarey Label Belladonna Tincture Unused

Tinctura Belladonnae (Printed Red to indicate that this is a Poison)
Tincture of Belladonna

"Medical Uses
Despite its toxicity, belladonna has some medicinal benefit. The chemicals atropine and scopolamine, which are derived from belladonna, have important medicinal properties.
Atropine and scopolamine have almost the same uses, but atropine is more effective at relaxing muscle spasms and regulating heart rate. It’s also used to dilate the pupils during an eye exam. Atropine can also be an antidote for insecticides and chemical warfare agents."

This printed Pharmacy label is circa 1920’s and came from a local pharmacy that bought the business in 1927.
This is one of many labels I have and will posting more narcotic and other no illegal compounds.
