Dexedrine advertisement, 1956.

why is this woman tired?
She may be tired for either of two reasons:
* because she is physically overworked. If this is the case, you prescribe rest, because rest is the only cure for this kind of physical problem.
* because she is mentally "done in." Many of your patients -- particularly housewives -- are crushed under a load of dull, routine duties that
leave them in a state of mental and emotional fatigue. For these patients, you may find 'Dexedrine' an ideal prescription.
'Dexedrine' will give them a feeling of energy and well-being, renewing their interest in life and living.
Dexedrine* (dextro-amphetamine sulfate, S.K.F.) is available as tablets, elixir, and Spansule* capsules (sustained release capsules, S.K.F.)
and is manufactured by Smith, Kline & French Laboratories, Philadelphia
*T.M. Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.       Patent Applied For.
