They were certainly euphoric..... people were even happy when they were vacuuming!!!
They were used for depression and obesity amongst other things. The barbiturate was present to reduce anxiety while the stimulant was intended to elevate mood (or decrease appetite). Remember, some people find short-acting barbiturates euphoric on their own!
