Re: [MOL] Brompton's Cocktail/Reply



Susan, it might be wise not to give your sister this forum.  The reason
being, we want you to always feel free to speak from the heart, to vent, to
laugh; etc. without being worried about anybody but us knowing.  How are you
doing kiddo?  How is your mother doing?  Missed you!  love lillian

combination drug: Brompton's mixture
This liquid "cocktail" of morphine (or heroin), cocaine, alcohol (and
sometimes other central nervous system depressants), chloroform water, and
flavoring, which probably takes its name from Brompton Hospital, was
sometimes provided to patients suffering from pain associated with terminal
illness.
