Laudanum, is an alcoholic herbal preparation containing approximately 10% powdered opium by weight (the equivalent of 1% morphine). It was generally distilled into a brownish syrup. Laudanum contains almost all of the opium alkaloids, including morphine and codeine. A potent narcotic by virtue of its high morphine concentration, laudanum was historically used to treat a variety of ailments, but its principal use was as an analgesic and cough suppressant. Until the early 20th century, laudanum was sold without a prescription and was a constituent of many patent medicines. Today, laudanum is strictly regulated and controlled throughout the world due to it's addictive, deadly side effects.
