Seconal (Secobarbital) Addiction and Abuse
Secobarbital relaxes your muscles and entire body by interacting with neurotransmitters in the brain, which results in a slowing down of brain function. This can reduce pain and result in significant drowsiness or even a blackout. Due to the powerful side effects of Seconal, you should only take this medication as prescribed by a doctor.
Secobarbital is a strong sedative drug, which makes it extremely dangerous when it is not taken at the correct dosage. This medication is intended to be used only for a short period of time.
Seconal is a powerful barbiturate and it is considered to be highly addictive. Seconal should not be taken for more than two weeks unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor.
When used excessively or in combination with other drugs, Seconal can lead to serious adverse side effects and can even result in an overdose. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience extreme drowsiness, fainting, light-headedness, memory loss or shallow breathing. Do you think that your Seconal use is becoming a problem? Reach out for help today. A substance use disorder doesn’t have to control your life.
There have been reports of patients using the drug and engaging in activities such as driving a car, walking, eating, or making a phone call without having any memory of it. Always take this medication as directed and only when you plan on going to sleep. Never take Seconal while using other medications, especially other central nervous system depressants like barbiturates or alcohol, as this can lead to an accidental overdose -which can result in death.
Taking Seconal without a doctor’s prescription is dangerous and can even be life-threatening. If you are struggling with a substance use disorder and see no way out, there is hope. Addiction doesn’t have to control your life – seek help today
