    Description

    Elvis Presley-Owned Prescription Bottle (1976). A 2.25" tall x 1.75" diameter empty amber-colored pill bottle (with white "line-up arrows" cap) bearing a label from The Prescription House on Madison Avenue in Memphis. The date is May 24, 1976, and the prescribing doctor (as expected) is Nichopoulos. Elvis was instructed to "Take as directed" the unlisted quantity of 15 mg Dexedrine spansules originally in this bottle. Dexedrine is a psychostimulant drug prescribed for the treatment of ADHD and narcolepsy. Excellent condition.



    More Information:

    Dr. George Nichopoulos, Presley's personal physician, was the subject of controversy after Elvis' death. In 1980, he was indicted on fourteen counts of overprescribing drugs to Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and other patients, but was acquitted on all counts. In 1977 alone, he had prescribed over 10,000 doses of various drugs for Elvis. It was in 1985 that his medical license was permanently revoked.
