Are you a doctor?

Seconal was RX'ed in the 1960-70's . A lot of people died from OD's and auto accidents. It is still used for people that have tried everything to sleep but nothing works. I dont know why it bothers you so much that a few patients are getting them. Unless your a doctor its not something your qualified to answer


Is secobarbital still available in the United States. ## Hello, Nik! How are you? Yes, it is listed as still being available to treat epilepsy and insomnia, though it also has some pre-operative uses with anesthesia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including somnolence, nausea, nightmares, headache and impaired balance. Is there anything else I can help with?

Seconal as a sleeping agent

I was prescribed Seconal during my stay at the hospital in 1970. It was an effective medication for me. I think that it should be available in a hospital setting only for the same reason why other potent medications are not readily prescribed to ambulatory patients.Moreover, I think that its use should be limited to the terminally ill patients who are unable to sleep due to the severity of their condition. Lastly, I think that strict rules should be in order for this medicine because it has been sadly abused in the past. ## Then I would recommend that send an email or a letter to the FDA regarding your experiences and opinions on it. this site does not have anything to do with controlling or approving medications, this is an information only site.
