Box of Kalmine 12 pills

Invented by the pharmacist Paul Métadier in Tours

Pyramidon and phenacetin-based analgesic seal.

This last molecule is particularly dangerous, it is an analgesic withdrawn from the market in 1983 because it is nephrotoxic (toxic for the kidney) and probably carcinogenic (kidney cancer).

It is used by the dealers to cut cocaine in order to reinforce the dependence...

Today paracetamol is used, which has similar analgesic and antipyretic properties but without the undesirable side effects.
