chloral hydrate..another name?
years ago the pediatrician gave me chloral hydrate drops to give our infant son when he had painful earaches that woke him screaming middle of the night- to let him (and us) rest until morning when we could get him to the Dr. I know there was a common name for this drug but I can't remember it ... can anyone help me out? Just 'bugging' my memory to recall it! It was a prescription in a dropper bottle & we placed a few drops on his tongue.
Appreciate anyone recalling this name as it has been frustrating my husband & I trying to recall it! Only thing he could think of was 'knock-out drops'!
