1x50 bottle of penicillin lozenges, calcium salt (benzylpenicillin sodium?), by Burroughs Wellcome, 1949
The bottle would have contained fifty lozenges of penicillin made by Burroughs Wellcome & Co, but they have now separated into tiny pink granules. To take the medication, a lozenge was placed between the cheek and gum and allowed to dissolve slowly.
