Supplemental Materials (draft)

Note: OED identifies this example (with some doubts) as an early example of the predominantly Scottish word 'drug' (with -g as opposed to -ǧ), and confines the verb 'drudge' (corresponding to MED's word) to examples from 1548 and later). MED will link to both OED entries.
