Cocaine was primarily used as a medicine by Europeans in the early 15th century. The 18th century saw a rise in the availability of cocaine in more concentrated forms and soon new medicinal uses of the drug were discovered. Cocaine was mainly used for the treatment of depression (due to its affect on the brain) and also used as an anesthetic. Cocaine was thereafter used regularly in elixirs and tonics and soon found its way into the popular soft drink ‘Coca Cola’.
