I'd never heard of Nuxated Iron, but it's little known how mainstream the use of strychnine was in this era. A while back we had in the bookshop a 1934 Faber & Faber guide for nurses called Principal Drugs and Their Uses, which described strychnine as "General tonic. Prescribed in various nervous disorders. It is among the most valuable and widely prescribed drugs". Undoubtedly the deal with Nuxated Iron was the stimulant effect of the strychine, which was highly misusable.
