It says you need a prescription for this....heck we used to buy them at Greenhalgh's grocers....I think they were 4d.
And it does not say what is in them!

Spirit of Ipecac makes you throw up (calls for 'Ralph').

Well, we never did find anything definitive about Robinson's, but thanks to you all for your ideas and comments.

Yes, it was commonly used to treat those in A&E who had taken overdoses(in the cases where it was safe to induce vomiting)....but in small doses it is effective in clearing the chest of mucus.
I use the homeopathic version of this and it is effective(my daughter is a trained homeopath).
We might not have got to the bottom of things, but it has produced some interesting nostalgic posts(that can't be bad).
