Stim-Barb combos were used extensively during the 1950's-60's for weight loss, depression, fatigue.
The idea was to use the Neuro-stimulating effects of The Amphetamine to do the main job of treating the above ills, and the sedative to prevent-minimise overstimulation.
Following the Controlled Substances Act- of 1970, Amphetamine use dropped 80-90% due to fear being placed into Docs, who prescribed Amphetamines, as all use except, Narcolepsy, Morbid Obesity, and probably sever, treatment-resistant Depression was tolerated.
Goofballs were ceased to be maunfactured around this time too.
