Unusual shaped bottle of "Camoquin" tablets, by Parke, Davis and Co., Ltd., London.
‘Camoquin’ is a brand name for an anti-malaria drug called Amodiaquine. The label on the bottle claims that this drug can prevent and treat all types of malaria. There has been some controversy over the use of this drug. During the 1980s a number of patients had severe side effects, such as toxic hepatitis, a condition which fatally lowers the body’s immune system. The drug is no longer prescribed.
