Just like any new medication, Pentothal has the potential to produce certain side effects. Although many people taking Pentothal do not experience side effects, some potential side effects include ongoing drowsiness, weak or shallow breathing, slow heartbeat, chills or shivering, sneezing, coughing, tight feelings in the throat area and bronchospasms (wheezing, chest tightness and trouble breathing).
Do not use Pentothal if you have been diagnosed with porphyria, liver or kidney disease, severe anemia, myasthenia gravis, asthma, any thyroid disorder or Addison’s disease. Pentothal should also be avoided if you have experienced an allergic reaction to other barbiturate medications, such as amobarbital, butabarbital, mephobarbital, secobarbital or phenobarbital.
In addition, before you take Pentothal, tell your doctor if you have any of the following conditions: severe heart disease, pituitary gland disorder, pancreas disorder, head injury, brain tumor, conditions that cause increased pressure inside the skull, problems with the muscles in or around the eyes, or if you take a blood thinner such as warfarin, Coumadin, or Jantoven. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, be sure to mention this to your doctor as Pentothal may potentially harm an unborn baby and can also pass into breast milk.
