Here is a little fun fact for Friday…….
Did you know that George Rieveschl, who worked in the Chemical Engineering Department of the University of Cincinnati invented Benadryl in 1940.
The Parke, Davis & Company held the original patent for Benadryl. Rieveschl received five percent of the royalties from the sale of Benadryl as long as Parke, Davis & Company held the patent. Once the patent expired in 1964, Rieveschl’s royalties ended, and other pharmaceutical companies began manufacturing the drug.
