  • Interesting Ampoules

    A shop I was working in yesterday had some interesting ampoules in their safe.

    Fraisse'd Ferruginous Ampoules. They're apparently for anaemia.

    They contain Iron Cacodylate, Iron Glycerophosphate and Strychnine!


    I quote from the Info leaflet:

    The characteristic of this soln is to supply in one liquid: Iron, Arsenic, Phosphorus and strychnine, the latter is a vital excitant.


    Do you reckion I should push to get this back on the dispensary shelves?

    Don't worry- arsenic oxide is still in the latest BNF, and you've still got 2 weeks to sell strychnine for getting rid of moles (the lawn-munching mammals, not the skin blemishes!)...
    On the other hand: as long as you can still see those ampoules in the safe, it means their contents haven't yet found their way into your precious cup of tea!
