DescriptionElvis Presley-Owned Prescription Bottle and Box (1976). Two items, as follows: (1) A 2.25" tall x 1.375" diameter empty amber-colored pill bottle (no cap) with a label from The Prescription House on Madison Avenue in Memphis. The date is June 23, 1976, and the prescribing doctor (as expected) is Nichopoulos. Elvis was instructed to "Use- as directed" the unlisted quantity of 40 mg Inderal tablets originally in this bottle. Inderal (also known as propranolol) is a beta blocker drug used to treat hypertension, anxiety, and panic. Excellent condition. (2) An empty box, 2.5" tall x 1.125" square, which once held a 10 ml multiple dose vial of Vernate injection. Also from The Prescription House with Dr. Nichopoulos listed as prescribing doctor, dated May 24, 1976, with instructions to Elvis to "use as directed." Box is in fair condition, insert flap missing on top.
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.

The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!View More Testimonials
