Abstract

The increasing demand for sleep-producing drugs is perhaps one of the characteristics of the restless age in which we now live. Not a year passes but half a dozen new synthetic hypnotics appear in the patent literature and a few of these find their way into the drug market. Most of these fail to meet the claims made by the manufacturers and are soon discarded, and the physicians continue to prescribe the eight or ten more or less familiar drugs that have survived several decades of clinical experience. Meanwhile, the chemical and pharmaceutical laboratories continue their search for the ideal hypnotic, for it must be admitted that none of the hypnotics in present day use are entirely free from certain objectionable qualities.
