    Default Green Syrup

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this forum and was relieved to find such a great place

    I found out a year ago that I was prescribed a heap of anti-psychotic medication when I was a child. I had no idea about this until I requested my file from the doctor.

    Obviously I've been trying to remember actually being given these drugs and the only thing I can remember is being given a horrible green syrup that made me really sick.

    The drugs that I know I was on are Valium, Ritalin, Chlorpromazine, Melleril, Stelazine.

    For some reason, I have a notion that the green syrup was Melleril - anyway, if anyone has any suggestions I'd be most grateful.

    Hi Abbey
    Do you know your pharmacist well? If so, talking to him or her is probably the easiset way to find out what the green syrup was.

    Hi Robo,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Unfortunately the pharmacist couldn't help - or should I say wouldn't. He wasn't willing to go through his paper records from the 70's to help me

    And so the search continues.....

    Okay - next step is some internet research. Not as easy as in the US, but as most medicines in Ireland (except the local generics) are imported from the UK, it is not impossible. Will work on it.

    Sorry Abbey - Actually is harder than I thought. All the medicines have probably been reformulated since the '70's
