The belladonna treatment?

Question: What was the belladonna treatment described on page seven of The Big Book?

Answer: It was an old treatment for depression and muscle spasm. Belladonna, also known as Deadly Nightshade, is a powerful sedative, narcotic and muscle relaxant that is no longer widely used for such treatments because it is also poisonous. For many more details see this link.
