White round pill 05 112

I have a pill with no name, just numbers... The pill is round and white, with the number 05 at the top and a marked line in the center, so pill could be divided in two, and the number 112 at the bottom of the pill. Is this Phenobarbital as the pharmacy says it is? ## Hi Ron, The only difference I'm seeing between your description and that of Phenobarbital (64.8mg) is the "0" actually being an "E". However, everything else is spot on as far as I can tell. The manufacturer is ironically listed as "e5 Pharma, LLC" and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 13517-112. Is there any way you could double check the "0" on your pill? ## I checked the pill out with a magnifying glass, and sure enough what looked like a 0, was in fact a very small "...

My druggist says he can seem to get it anymore. I need this med & cannot be without it. It controls my seisures. I am really upset. Why would you stop making this product?

What fillers are used in this vs what I used to take (5012 v)?

Belladonna Phenobarbital

My fiance has been prescribed this drug for a digestive problem. Lately all she does is sleep. She has almost slept for 72 hours straight. When she does get up she has no energy, tires very fast and has to go back to sleep.Could this drug be having adverse effects on her and causing these symptoms john ## Yes, such things are possible with any medication. Has she contacted her doctor? The Phenobarbital in this is a Barbiturate and if it is causing her to sleep that much and that long, then it is probably not the right medication for her to use, or she may require a lower dosage. ## did you read the paper work it should tell you what it does

phenobarbital shelf life

Does a ten year old pill still have any potensy ## Most likely not. Even those still sealed in the original factory container that doesn't expose them to the elements that cause degradation start to degrade after about 4 years. Once those are opened and they're exposed to the elements, degradation usually starts after a year. Learn more Phenobarbital details here. At this point, it is best to just dispose of them.
