Baby Boomer Fun: Miles Nervine


Thursday is baby boomer fun day here, no real estate, so here goes..

A Curious 1960's Ad Campaign
Never thought about it when these ads were on TV, but what exactly was in those Miles Nervine tablets? Specially formulated to ease nervous tension and all that. The car pulling into the parking lot looks like a 1960 Ford Fairlane to help place the date of this commercial gem

ENJOY ! 30 seconds

Apparently Nervine's active ingredient was in the antihistamine class, so you got drowsy, and one would assume, more relaxed. This was obviously before we thought about the risks in such behavior. It was ok to do then.

Nervine remained on the market until the latter part of the 1960's. Here is a more comprehensive piece from Consumer Reports.
