Throughout the Second World War Hitler was addicted to cocaine and amphetamines, and became dependent on testosterone, opiates, sedatives and laxatives in order to cope with the pressures of being the Führer. Germany had also embraced the use of amphetamines during the Second World War and the Temmler pharmaceutical company developed Pervitin in 1938 and it was widely used by nazi troops to provide alertness and as an anti-depressant. Toward the end of the war, German scientists devised a new drug cocktail to extend the limits of human endurance, the so called "D-IX" - 5 mg of Cocaine, 3 mg of Methamphetamine and 5 mg of Oxycodone, was intended to be distributed throughout Nazi Germany's military forces. Hitler is thought to have used this cocktail or a drug called Eukodal - an opioid, in a historic meeting with Mussolini that was instrumental with keeping the Axis's war effort going.
