Where can I find a bottle of spirit of ammonia in Baltimore, Maryland? I used it years ago to help with unbearably painful headaches, due to medical problems. Now the problem is back and this is the only thing to take my headaches away fast, without using pain meds that have been prescribed.

Call your local hospital pharmacy.. I have only fainted once in my life, when I was having a biopsy of my uterine lining to check for various hormone levels; the doctor woke me with spirits of ammonia vial. I assume it's still used for the same reason, fainting patients.

I worked at the soda fountain at Matthew Rexall Drug Store in Great Falls, SC in the '60s and made Ammonia and Coke for customers often. I used a cap full (maybe a 4 oz. bottle) for each Coke.

My mother used to take an combination of coke cola and spirits of ammonia. It was maybe 4 drops of the spirits of ammonia in a coke glass and drink. I now use it when feeling upset beyond control. I told a doctor about it the other day and she had never heard of it.

They used to sell it at the drug store called READS. They also sold it at Murphy's and Woolworth's. it was on the menu as coke and spirits of ammonia. You can also use it in orange juice.


My question is, has anyone else heard of this?

Thank you,

I use it for my nerves. My OBGYN told me about it 24 years ago when I was pregnant with my first child and my nerves were shot. He told me to put a few ddrops in soda and sip on it to calm me down. I still keep a bottle handy especially when I go on road trips with my nieces and grandchildren. lol
