need script for seconal
I am 66 and used seconal in the very early 70's to decompress from 2 tours in vietnam and i am having sleep and recurring issues again along with many physical problems I am not sure my Dr will give me a script for them...are they still manufactured...how can I find an agreeable DR ## Hello, Alan! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems you're having. Yes, it is still available in the 100mg dose. However, there are also other treatment options available that are much cheaper, which a doctor might want you to try, now. Something else may work even better for you. Do you currently have a GP that you see regularly that you could discuss it with?

Seconal for Euthanasia
I can an incurable illness. I need to acquire seconal for purposes of euthanasia. How can I do this? ## Hi Gio, I'm sorry to hear that you are trying to use this medication to end your life. For this very reason, I have my doubts that a doctor would even be willing to write you a script for it. Seconal (Secobarbital sodium) is a "prescription-only" medication, indicated for: Treatment of epilepsy, Temporary treatment of insomnia, & Used as a preoperative medication to produce anaesthesia and anxiolysis in short surgical, diagnostic, or therapeutic procedures which are minimally painful. May I ask what type of illness you have that cannot be cured? ## I'm so sorry for your situation.

tuinal or seconal
I can't find any seconal or tuinal, I took this medication for many years after getting ulscers from fiorinal so I'm searching to find out where I can get this very old sleeping medication. Because I took Barbiturates for so long noyhing else works. ## I'm trying to find seconnal or tuinal as i was on fiorinal for so long eventually i was put on tuinal, because of alcurs to much asperin in the fiorinal. Barbituates as being such an old drug are hard to come by and nothing else works for getting a good nite sleep. i'm trying to order some if you carry them, the 100mg tuinal or stronger but not the smaller ones.

seconal from 2006
I received a prescription for seconal 100mg in 2006. It has not been opened and kept in the dark. What are the chances that it is still active? If it is not 100% active can you estimate it's activity? Could it be 50% active? Thank you. ## Hello, Jack! How are you? Is it in a bottle from your pharmacy, or the original factory sealed bottle? If it's in a pharmacy bottle, then that does count as being opened, since it was removed from the original container and it would have expired one year from the date of dispensing. And no, I can't even guess at the level of effectiveness that may remain, but I doubt its much, if any. It would be best to dispose of them and see your doctor for a new prescription. ## The seconal is in an offical looking container from Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals...

Uk still prescribes
Everyone seems to Find it hard to get seconal, but i just went to my GP and said i would Like these for sleeping, and they prescribed me 6 months of them 100mg. Avoid even a glass of wine with these OMG! ## Many of these types of medications have some potentially serious interactions with alcohol in general, so I can certainly understand why they recommend avoiding it at all costs, for your own safety. From what I could gather, this medication possesses anaesthetic, anticonvulsant, sedative, and hypnotic properties (all in one); making it quite potent in that regard. Have you taken seconal in the past with any success? You can learn more about this drug on the page for Seconal Details I hope this info helps!

Seconal
Does anyone know where to get Seconal. I have a Rx but no one has it ## Have you tried asking your pharmacy if they can order it in for you? Even if they don't carry it, they should be able to order enough in to fill your prescription. The pharmacy I use regularly just did this with a medication for me, because I'm a regular customer and they know I'll gladly buy it there instead of running elsewhere. Learn more Seconal details here. Your best bet is to go in, show them your prescription and see what they can do for you. Are there any other comments or questions? ## Great advice. Thank you. I will try today. ## I can't sleep at nite. In a weks time I maybe get 4hours of sleelp. I need help. I look and I feel old..?

Red Tablet Pill
It is the sleeping pill most commonly used in hospitals. it comes in doses of 15 and 30 mg. What is its name? It is not Seconal. Ir is a low potency drug, it's more of a hypnotic than a barbiturate. ## I'm sorry, but unfortunately, the color doesn't really help identify it. And, as to what it may be, that can really depend on the area, the preferred drug of choice can vary from area to area and hospital to hospital. For instance, out here in Washington, the hospital in my area uses Ambien, which is available as a 5 and 10mg tablet. Does anyone else have any ideas? ## Likely, you are referring to the Schedule IV benzodiazepine "Restoril" or the generic pill/capsule version. The generic name is temazepam. Interestingly, Restoril (temazepam) is prescribed for insomnia/s...
