As a child in the 1960's, for attacks of bronchial asthma, I was given tiny, hideous-tasting white pills called Tedril. They made me VERY sick, and to-all-intents-and-purposes, knocked me out cold for 12 hours at a time. Has anyone else taken this medication? Does anyone know what it was, who its pharmaceutical company/creator was, or what its current-day equilalent would be? I can't find ANY information about it anywhere.
In the 1950's and early 1960's, my job got me into a lot of dusty grain elevators and a grain lab where grain dust was ever-present. I would get all tight -- breathing was difficult. One half of a Tedril tablet would clear it up. I could almost feel the stuff working to get rid of phlem and tightness. Breathing would become normal. I, too, have wondered what the stuff was made of and what, if anything, is used now to combat problems I had then.
