Non-medical use of prescription drugs has increased throughout the nation. In 2007, over 6 million people were using prescription drugs for non-medical purposes. Approximately 300,000 individuals were using sedatives, such as Nembutal, for non-therapeutic reasons. Nembutal is a brand name for pentobarbital, which is no longer available in the US.
“Break the hold Nembutal has on you and seek assistance from a Nembutal withdrawal treatment facility.”Pentobarbital, used to treat insomnia and anxiety, is potentially addictive. It is fairly common for people to misuse or abuse sedative drugs, such as the barbiturate Nembutal. A Substance Abuse Treatment advisory indicates that, in 2004, more Americans reported taking prescription drugs for non-medical purposes than those who reported abuse of cocaine, hallucinogens, heroin and inhalants. Break the hold Nembutal has on you and seek assistance from a Nembutal withdrawal treatment facility. Call and start detox now.

Why Do I Need to Detox?

Barbiturates, such as Nembutal, are commonly misused and abused. Consumption over an extended period of time can result in tolerance, causing individuals to take more than prescribed to achieve the same effect. Ingesting large amounts of barbiturates may result in negative consequences, including death. If you are taking more than the prescribed amount, you may need to seek treatment at a Nembutal detox center. Call now to locate one near you.

Adverse Health Consequences of Pentobarbital Misuse

DeathTaking Pentobarbital for non-therapeutic reasons can have serious adverse health consequences including toxic reactions and overdose. Serious drug interactions leading to life-threatening conditions can also occur including:

  • Respiratory depression
  • High or low blood pressure
  • Seizures
  • Cardiovascular collapse
  • Death

What Will Happen During Detox?

During the detox process, you will be monitored by medical professionals as the Nembutal is slowly weaned out of your body. Generally, medications are given to counteract some of the symptoms of withdrawal to make the process more tolerable for recovering addicts. When you undergo detox in a professional facility, your safety and health are better ensured during the detox process.

Suddenly stopping your intake of Nembutal may cause withdrawal reactions including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Tachycardia
  • Diaphoresis
  • Tremors
  • Hyperthermia
  • Seizures

“During the detox process, you will be monitored by medical professionals as the Nembutal is slowly weaned out of your body.”
These withdrawal symptoms can be mitigated by various medications prescribed during detox. Oftentimes, antidepressants are given to counteract some of the feelings of sadness and worry that often accompany the withdrawal process. The Nembutal detox facility you choose will assess your particular situation and determine the best course of treatment.
