Dr. Theodor Morell And The Untold Truth About Hitler’s Drug Habit
By Daniel Rennie
Published April 2, 2018

In August of 1941, Hitler became seriously ill. Up until that moment, he had been receiving daily injections of vitamins and glucose, but they were no longer effective. Nervously, Morell turned to more medically dubious animal hormones.

Hitler’s injections included metabolic stimulants, sex hormones, extracts made from the seminal vesicles, and prostates of young bull and pig livers. Hitler didn’t eat meat, but he was having animal substances injected directly into his bloodstream.

The medical medley increased from there. Morell promised Hitler “instant recovery,” and as Hitler’s body got used to the compounds injected into his system, he required higher doses and stronger drugs to have an impact.

Soon Hitler was on uppers and downers in tandem. If he couldn’t sleep, he received a dose of barbiturates and morphine. If he needed to wake, then he received injections of ever stronger stimulants.

These medley of injections earned Morell the nickname, the “Reichmaster of Injections.”

In 1943, Morell began injecting high doses of opiates into Hitler. His health was declining, often appearing stooped and considerably aged according to those closest to him. Eukodal (oxycodone), the pharmacological cousin to heroin, became Hitler’s panacea. It made Hitler euphoric, and with the frequency of high doses injected, it seems likely that he became addicted.

But soon even Eukodal would not be enough. On July 20, 1944, Hitler sustained minor injuries from an attempted assassination attempt in the Wolf’s Lair. This time, Dr. Erwin Giesing treated Hitler and he had a favorite remedy of his own called cocaine. From then on, the Fuhrer received Eukodal combined with two doses of high-grade cocaine daily.
