    Norman Ohler, a German journalist, published a book in 2015 titled "BLITZED-Drugs in the Third Reich". It has been recently translated into English and is a very interesting read. His writing is in journalistic style but he has quite a bit of documentation to back it up. The first part is the use of Pervitin and other amphetamines as well as artificial opiods (painkillers) by German soldiers-a topic we discussed not too long ago. He goes also goes into the drugs (mostly amphetamines and opiods) given by his personal doctor(?) Theodor Morell. Morell didn't restrict himself just to these but injected Hitler with many more substances besides. Here is a list of stuff that Morell was giving his "Patient A", i.e. Hitler.

    "An alphabetical list giving the German names clearly demonstrates the madness of the treatment (sthe psychoactive, consciousness-changing drugs are italicized): Acidol-Pepsin, Antiplogistine, Argentum nitricum, Belladonna Obstinol, Benerva forte, Betabion, Bismogenol, Brom-nervacit, brobalonton-bad, cafaspin, CalciumSandoz, Calomel, Cantan, cardiazol, Cariazol-Ephedrin, Chineurin, Cocain, Codein, Coramin, Cortiron, Digilanid Sandoz, Dolantin,Enterofagos, Enzynorm, Esdesan,Eubasin, Euflat, Eukodal, Eupaverin, Franzbranntwein, Gallestol, Glucose, Glyconomr, Gycovarin, Hammavit, Harmin, Homburg 690, Homoseran, Intelan, Jod-Jodkali-Glycerin, Kalzan- Karlsbader-Sprudelsalz, Kissinger-Pills, Kosters antigas-pills, Lugolsche Losung, Luizym, Luminal,Mitilax Mutaflor, Nateina, Neo-Pycocyanase, Nitroglycerin, Obstinol, Omnadin,Optalidon, Orchikrin, Penicillin-Hamma, Perubalsam, Pervitin, Profundol, Progynon, Prostakrin, Prostophanta, Pyrenol, Quadro-nox, Relaxol, Rizinus-oil, Sango-stop, Scophedal, Septojod, Spasmopurin, Strophanitn, Strophantose, Suprarenin (Adrenalin), Sympatol, Targesin, Tempidorm-Suppositories, Testoviron, Thrombo-Vetren, Tibatin, Tonophosphan, Tonsillopan, Trocken-Koli-Hamma, Tussamag, Ultraseptyl, Vitramultin, Yatren."

    WHEW!
    I'll leave it up to the rest of you to figure out what the psychological implications of this witches brew would be. I'll just mention that once Morell became his full time physician was in about 1942, which was about the time that people close to Hitler were noticing a loss of logical thinking and concentration in him.

    Pervitin was Heer meth.

    I currently have a pump in my gut that sends doses of oxycodone to my giggle center. Adolf was an amateur.

    I don't know if Unser Adolph was an amateur or not but after 26 years in the addictions field I do know that I've never known any junkie to be using even half the amount of substances that he was on. It could very well be that "Doctor" Morell made a significant contribution of the defeat of Germany.

    However, I do know that I'm hoping that you recover quickly and completely.

    I'm fine with this. No mixing drugs. Besides that stuff ain't proven yet. I am NOT an early adopter.

    They all think they're immune and/or they won't do that much. Sneaky shit is sneaky.

    You could have a pretty good weekend in Berlin with a list of drugs like that.

    A lot of this stuff is Morrel's own concoctions. He went around to all the slaughterhouses in Germany and harvested every gland he could find (example: young bull testicles) and ground them up and extracted their secretions. He not only injected these into Hitler, he sold a bunch of it in pill form to various pharmacies in Germany to augment his income.

    Ohler's writing style can be a little off-putting for some people. It's a little too "journalistic". However, he has amassed quite a bit of documentation to back up his basic claims. People will have to read it and judge for themselves.
