Larzine, Unani medicine for malaria, one of a selection of drugs and related material from India, 1975-1980.

Unani Tibb is an ancient medical tradition. It is similar to Ayurveda, a medical tradition with roots in the Indian subcontinent. This imported Unani Tibb medicine is advertised as a treatment for malaria. It is printed in English and Urdu and is possibly aimed at the immigrant Asian community and Westerners. One teaspoon was to be taken three times a day, or a half dosage for children.
