Vintage Drug Ads

Hilarious vintage ads for psychotropic and psychiatric medications from the 1940′s – 1970′s. If you’re looking for a good time-wrap laugh, this is it. And really, are today’s Zoloft ads in USA Today Magazine or Parade Magazine and on television much different? They’re simplifying depression to the point of cartoonishness (literally!).
