BUTABARBITAL (Butisol®) is a barbiturate that slows down activity of the brain and nervous system. Butabarbital has both sedative and hypnotic properties which means it will help you to relax and sleep. Butabarbital is only for short-term use of two weeks or less for treatment of insomnia (difficulty sleeping). Butabarbital can help produce relaxation and drowsiness before surgery. Federal law prohibits the transfer of butabarbital to any person other than the patient for whom it was prescribed. Do not share your medicine with anyone else. Generic butabarbital tablets are available.

VerFree Says:

Sherocky, this is a controlled substance, so it is only available in the U.S. via a doctor's prescription. The price may vary from pharmacy to pharmacy, dosage, amount dispensed, and etc.

Butisol may cause side effects, such as nausea, impaired memory, suicidal ideation, apnea, skin rash, and constipation.

Is there anything I can help with?
