Ephedrine is a stimulant which is still prescribed as a decongestant, I imagine that it's marked as a poison because a decent sized dose would be harmful. A lot of things are safe enough at small doses and lethal at large ones.
Some of them have notes on the back-the phenobarbital (maybe that’s what it is) has a note about it being habit forming-the red poison ones are interesting-they require a prescription but why would a poison be prescribed as medicine? If there are hundreds of them I’m gonna end up spending the rest of my life trying to find them all!
Thanks for your help!

As for Mallinckrodt, they were a major player in the irresponsible pushing of opioid painkillers despite knowing their dangers, which led to the current opioid crisis. They recently filed for bankruptcy due to the lawsuits but I think the company still exists.
