tuinal or seconal

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. ...

seconal death

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? ## I have cancer this internet site told me by my weight id need 250 pills/ 100mg each Seconal...how do you keep from throwing them up do I need a muscle relaxer also? ## This internet website says I need 250 100mg Seconal pills by my weight for Euthanasia I have cancer...any wa...

Seconal for Insomnia

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...

Seconal Shortage-2 years, Enough is Enough

Bausch health, as the sole supplier of this 80 year old insomnia CURE, (and 2 year testament of my success 1st hand with 200mgs a night) and the legions of agonizing deaths of terminal ill patients that have chosen physician assisted suicide have now have been suffering AGONIZING end of life treatments in the wake of this shortage. These agonizing deaths are on your hands due to your unwillingness to manufacture Seconal. Seconal, first line treatment and painless/peaceful exit of this world w/ their loved ones from their terminal illness. My insomnia has been barely curtailed minimally with heavy benzos to have bare minimum 4 hours a night. These terminally ill patients are the ones that have been suffering the most with their substitute for Seconal, a 3 med concoction which anecdotally...

Seconal and the correct uses

Walgreens in Georgia orders 100 capsules for me every three months. Must be careful with this Rx, however it works better than anything available for insomnia. It is definitely available. Most younger pharmacists have never heard of it and the older pharmacists know it but "haven't had a script in 30 years for Seconal". The new company that purchased rights to produce Seconal (Valliant) has been under fire for hiking the price to sometimes over 4000.00/100 capsules in this EIGHTY year old drug. This is insane. It is used in Oregon and California for assisted suicide and apparently works very well. Regardless, for an insomniac, nothing works better than carefully used Seconal. It has been vilified to the point physicians are scared to prescribe. So silly. ## One should be car...

Depression, Anxiety, Agitation - It's Unbearable

For over 50 years I struggled with this condition. I stuck it out with hard work and faking it. Now that I'm nearly 77, I cant go on anymore, but don't want to traumatize family that I see (not often)! In three years I lost my wife (2015), sister (2016), & both young nieces (2017- 2018). I had supported them all until death basically! I have been on psychotropic prescription drugs for 50 years, presently on three 1mg Xanax and two Effexor 150 mg. It's hell on earth! ## Are those the only medications you are currently on? I could be that you need to try a different medication, or a combination of them. Have you informed your doctor that this current combination just isn't working? You've been through a lot, so it is not surprising that you are feeling this way, yo...

shelf life seconal

what's the shelf-life of old seconal tablets? ## Shelf life of Seconal is 60 months. Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## In my experience, expired Seconal was 100 percent good. I've taken expired 60s even 50s of Secobarb / Seconal and it's like nothing changed period.

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'...
