Nembutal – See Related Topics
Nembutal is one of the older drugs found on the market today – having been around since the late 19th century. It is a prescription barbiturate drug that is usually used in the treatment of insomnia and seizures. Nembutal works on the body’s central nervous system (CNS) to slow down the user’s brain and voluntary bodily functions. Occasionally, this drug is also used as a general anesthetic prior to surgery. It is a very potent drug and is also commonly used in veterinary practices when an animal needs to be euthanized. As such, it has earned a reputation with end-of-life activists as being one of the “go to” drugs for self-assisted death. Individuals with terminal conditions seek out this drug via alternatives to traditional medical channels and have been known to use it to end their own lives.
When used traditionally via prescription, Nembutal is usually dosed for no more than two weeks. Longer durations of use have been known to produce complications for the user such as blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing all slowing to dangerous or even lethal levels.
Physicians warn that Nembutal needs to be used only as prescribed. More minor side effects during normal use can include slurred speech, delirium, weakened pulse, stoppage of breathing, headache, hypotension. If combined with alcohol consumption, these effects can worsen, even to the point of death.
