How to use "Quaalude" in context?
What is quaalude?
Quaalude is a sedative and hypnotic drug that became popular in the early 1970s. It is classified as a benzodiazepine, and is similar to Valium. Quaalude is often misidentified as ecstasy, which can result in dangerous mixed drug use.
Quaalude was first synthesized in 1964 by the British pharmaceutical company GSK. It was approved for use in the United States in 1972 and became popular as a party drug. It is often used to relieve anxiety and tension, and is also used as a sleep aid.
