Glass bottle for De Witt’s Kidney and Bladder Pills, England, 1920-1960
Bottle containing De Witt's kidney and bladder pills, prepared by E. C. De Witt and Co. Ltd., Croydon, 1920-1960
Aimed at adults and children above the age of eight, De Witt’s Kidney and Bladder Pills were intended to ease backache, aches and pains in the muscles, and kidney problems. They are typical of a huge range of treatments that were available ‘over the counter’ at pharmacists for many years.
It is not known how effective the pills were but the label assures people not to be alarmed if their urine takes on a bluish colour after taking a dose.
