Diazapam or Phenobarbatol would be overkill, but of a lesser extent than Thorazine!
Valium would probably be inappropriate for a toddler.
After 4 m/c, our is here!
And I have friends who said they always looked forward to the "special lemon drink" they got before road trips. (it was Neo Citrin!!!)
I hope you find out what your sister was given and that the info helps to answer your questions.
Happy mumma to my boys Henny Tom (Nov 30, 2008), Arlo Odie (Oct 5, 2010), and baby SISTER! due mid-Dec 2014.
I do know someone who had "special green milk" every night. Yeah. It was Nyquill mixed with milk. Those are some messed up parents. (and I can't even contemplate the flavor)
I am constantly amazed at what the medical community is able to get away with.
Most likely it was something called peragoric. According to my parents it was WONDERFUL stuff, and at first did not need a prescription, then they had to sign for it, then it was prescription only. Someone finally wised up that it was an opium derivitive.
My sister was colicky and my parents gave it to her. She was born in '74.
I hated the fact that my daughter was given diazepam but she had been fitting for over 30 mins with no signs of coming round.

This thread makes me angry and sad.
Me: Reglan, Demerol, anything 'cillin', Thorazine...
Nurse: Thorazine? When were you given that & why?
Me: As a toddler before head CTs or MRIs.
Nurse: Really? WOW! They gave that to babies?
I was born in 1976 and it was given to my parents to help me sleep when I was teething. :
To this day they will joke about it by name and say how wonderful it was. They love to talk about how I never slept as a baby. I'm willing to bet I slept pretty darn well on the nights they gave me peragoric!!!! Ugh.

My g-ma, and aunts on that side, just put some brandy in a bottle. You don't need a Rx for that....
my one aunt said it would knock her kiddos out for like 17 hours!...and she's proud to tell the story!!!!
