Re: Anyone ever take cold medicine called "666?"
I recall taking 666 in the late 70s and early 80s. And if my sister and I recall correctly at the time the liquid remedy contain magnesium sulfate(Epsom Salt). The need to take it with copious amounts of waster is because it had a strong laxative effect. Like my elders said "it'll run the cold outta you!" and it did. After taking it I always got better very quickly.

666 cold preparation and cold tablets are still made by Monticello Drug Co. according to their site the company:
was started in 1908 by Tharp and Thurston Roberts, who got a patent on a prescription locally known as Roberts Remedies #666. This prescription consisted of a high concentration of quinine along with other ingredients and became the best selling remedy for malaria, chills, fever, influenza, colds, constipation, and bilious headaches.

"During the depression years, the business continued to grow in spite of the economic situation because the medicine was kept available and affordable. Dr. Roberts was once asked, “How can you make any money when you are only asking 25 cents and 35 cents a bottle?” He answered, "You sell a lot of bottles"; and that he did."

Re: Anyone ever take cold medicine called "666?"
My co workers and I were talking about this medicine a few days ago, it was so strong, if it did not cure you, then you need to be in the hospital. It really worked, my grandmother gave it to us during the winter when we would get the flu, and sometimes I would rather be sick, it taste really bad, but it did work, and by the next day you were already feeling better

My wife told me that's what her mother gave her when she was a kid. I've never heard of it before. I thought she was remembering wrong, and it was actually "Vick's 66," but her sisters and cousins all agree with her. Anyone else remember taking it?

I actually found some stuff about it online. No doubt it actually exists, but I wanted to see what the forum thought about it. Apparently, it's for when you have one Hell of a cold.

I remember "Three Sixes" well from the 60's. I remember seei git the drug store but we never had it or took it. It had a very old timey look to the bottle and label. It was an old fashioned product that had a loyal following among poorer rural people and blacks.

Yes! My grandmother gave it to me in pill form. That stuff really worked fast. That was 1974-76. I always said that those pills would run the devil out of you.

Yes, about sixty years ago, my Dad always made us all take a Three 666's tonic. I did not know it was a cold medicine.
The taste was terrible

I took it once as a child but I didn't like the way it made my head spin around and the projectile pea green vomit was no fun either. But yes, it's the real deal.

Re: Anyone ever take cold medicine called "666?"
Three 6's (666) is what we called it when my siblings and I were children. And yes, our Mother gave it to us as well!! This was by far the nastiest medicine, I've ever taken and vowed I would never give it to my children. As one post mentioned, it probably worked, if only one could get past the taste first. Don't necessarily know if it was a Southern thing, but do know from NY to NC, everyone knew how awful that medicine was. Over joyed, that it was taken off the market.

I took this medicine when when i was a kid also. its its extremely nasty, but your cold qill go away in like 2days max. its yellow, thin and coats your tongue something vicious. If you can actually stomach the medicine without throwing up, your cured. It taste like the flavor in your mouth after you eat cranberry sauce then drink water. Try it, but be warned its nasty.

I had to take it too and it was one of those things kids ran from and hid under the bed. But so help me, it fixed whatever ailed you. Came across a place here in Atlanta that carries the REAL one...I don't know what this one with Tylenol in it is all about! If you ever find the real deal, don't question, just take it when you get sick. We used to say it was called 3 sixes cause it tasted so nasty the devil didn't even want to take it!goodevilangel3angel3angel3angel3angel3angel3

Yes I used to take it as a child. The most awful thing that you could ever take, I mean the absolute worst. But when you woke up in the morning you felt like a new person. I cant stress how terrible it was to take. I found some in a country drug store and I make sure that I keep a bottle handy. Nothing works better for the cold and flu, but it is horrible.
yes tast like==but it works=

I'm 61 and it's what my mom used 666 for colds and flu. Works in a couple of days. Symptoms go as the poisons, phelm and bad bacteria is brought up and out. Tastes awful, works faster than anything else. The yellow liquid works quicker than the pills. It's one of the meds that the pharmacuticals haven't tampered with. That and Father John's.

Re: Anyone ever take cold medicine called "666?"
Yes, I could still find it up to 1993 in a store in NJ. Southern folk swear by it. It is the nastiest concoction on earth. BUT it got rid of flu, phlegm, body aches, chills and fevers. 2-3 days tops. You have to be feeling like pure crap and wanna die to take it. I understand it was taken off the market and replaced with something ineffective.

Re: Anyone ever take cold medicine called "666?"
YES, I remember 666 cold medicine. One of the best nasty tasting products on the market many years ago. I had a very bad head cold and I was refusing to take it. While sitting in a chair my sister pulled my hair back and slammed the bottle in my mouth. Few minutes later all this snot came running out of my nose, alot of snot.
Another great medicine that is no longer on the market was Black Draught, NASTY but worked good, really cleaned you out!
