I have been on pheonbarbital for 40 years, no problem 60 mg 2x a day now. I am being told its back ordered, they don't make it, they reformulated it, to 16.2, 32.4, 64.8, 97.2. I have called all the pharmacys, rite aid, walgreen, walmart, cvs, walmart, even you mail ord company can't get it as its back ordered with no release date, what are we to do, we have to have this med daily, and some pharmacist is not going to tell me that the 64.8 is the same as 60 mg that would mean I would be taking almost 9mg more than perscribed, also how can a pharmacy fill a perscription for 60mg with 64.88mg, I would think that if they were turned in they could be in trouble. Please help, thank you

Hello, Heather! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you're having.

No, that's just less than 5mgs more, not 9.

There have been quite a few people posting about this issue.

Have you consulted your doctor? It's likely that you may just need to switch to a different medication.

I had a bad head injury with a gunshot in my head and had 7 surgeries to remove all of the decay. My Dr. (who is now retired) said I must take phenobarbital the rest of my life as I may have a seizure. I have never had a seizure taking 1 tablet (30 mg) in the morning, and 2 tablets (30 mg) at bedtime. YES. I received the same information. My new Dr. said to take the 32.4 mg tablets the same as before. YES. It makes a tremendous difference in my mental capacity. I cut 1 tablet of 32.4 mg in half SO I take 1 tablet (32.4 mg) in the morning and 1 tablet (32.4 mg) PLUS the in half tablet of 16.2 mg at bedtime. I will go for another blood test and YES it shows BAD for my mental health. My surgery was June, l982 so I have ben on 30 mg tablets ALL THIS TIME ! ! ANY SUGGESTIONS OF WHAT TO DO NOW ! ! Thanks ! JAN
