Old Medics, Old Drugs

Just a question out there.....how many of you 'old' medics ever have Physostigmine and Nifedipine in your drug boxes. Then, did you ever have the chance in using one or both of them before. This is purely a question in 'wondering'. Oh yeah, I'm talking prehospital, not in house.
I don't know if I count as an "old" medic. I graduated 11 years ago, but I had nifedipine on the truck when I was a new grad. I don't miss it. I never had the need to use it, and heard of too many situations where it was given inappropriately.
Nowadays if I wanted to decrease MAP, I could use IV NTG, but I can't think of too many situations where I'd want to.

It was never available to us since the inception of ALS in the province.
