Chloroform

Surgery back in the old days was terrible. You’d be given nothing but a stick to bite down on in order to deal with the pain. So when chloroform came around in the 1800’s, it was great for putting people to sleep while under the knife. However, it wasn’t long before tonnes of complications and even deaths became associated with chloroform, so by the 50’s it was ultimately phased out of medical practices.
