Seconal Overview

Secobarbital sodium (marketed by Eli Lilly and Company, and subsequently by other companies as described below, under the brand name Seconal) is a barbiturate derivative drug that was patented in 1934 in the US.[2] It possesses anaesthetic, anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, sedative, and hypnotic properties.

Does anyone know where to get Seconal. I have an Rx but no one has it in stock. ## 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..? ## Hi all, I have a legitimate prescription f...

Seconal (reds) availability

I remember these from the 60s, when we took anything and everything for a buzz. Now I'd just like to get some sleep that lasts for more than 5 minutes. My drug abuse as a teenager left me hypersensitive to most drugs, even OTC stuff. Something that works the first time is quickly ineffective and actually has the opposite effect: wide awake, wired, terrible waking nightmares. These new benzos gave the drug companies new products to patent, but are of little value for serious insomnia. ## How about Placidyl? I couldn't think of the name until I read Steven Tyler's book, "Does the Noise in my Head Bother You?" Did this sleep med also get thrown on the scrap heap in favor of alprazolam and its mamby-pamby cousins? ## Yeah, I remember the jelly reds and greens. Haven'...

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! ## Got any idea if doctors in the US will prescribe it? ## Used second and tuin...

Person took 100 100mgcapsules of seconal sodium 6hours ago,and is still alive.is this normal? ## Not every overdose is immediately fatal. Even though the person may seem to be alive and fine, you can't see whether or not they've done any organ damage, especially to their liver, which usually takes the brunt of such overdoses. Has the person displayed any symptoms of overdose that the FDA lists, such as dizziness, hypothermia, hemorrhagic blisters and shallow breathing? Have you called emergency services?

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...

Seconal for Insomnia
9 Replies RSS
My physician prescribed every benzo drug imaginable (Ambien, Lunesta, sp?) and they were ineffective for my occasional insomnia, at best. He gave me a prescription for Seconal to use as needed. When I tried to fill it you would have thought the Rx said "Opiates" or "LSD". The younger pharmacists had not a clue as to what it was, and the older ones acted like they had seen a ghost. Anyway, I finally found the medication via my home delivery pharmacy and when I need it, I take it and it works. No wiped out memory, no sleepwalking, so groggy aftermath. Any drug when taken in excess or with other drugs can be dangerous...this includes simple OTC drugs, Tylenol, aspirin etc. This drug has been so vilified. I know that there is another use for the drug (in Oregon), however thi...

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 see if the 100mg tuinal are still manufactured and whether I can ask my doctor to prescribe them? ## Have u found a place to fill a prescription yet? I'm still struggling along with EXTREME anxiety and panic attacks at least every other night. ...

pharmacist doesn't carry seconal

Hi, I was prescribed seconal for insomnia and when I went to my usual pharmacy, I was told they don't carry it. I then went to several of the big, chains Pharmacies and was told the same thing along with the fact they they wouldn't even order it. They recommended trying an independent pharmacy. I then went to several of those and was told the same, with the recommendation to try the bigger, chain ones!!! Is Seconal impossible to get even with a legit doctor's prescription?!?! If not, does anyone know ANYone in LA/Long Beach area that does carry the drug? This is insane. ## Hello, Walter! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. I'd suggest trying a hospital pharmacy or a compounding pharmacy, both tend to keep a larger supply of more unusual m...
