Today, Seconal is most commonly used in doctor-assisted suicide. It’s also an anticonvulsant drug and can be used to reduce seizures in patients who have epilepsy. It’s advised to exercise caution when taking Seconal and to be vigilant for signs of addiction and withdrawal. Seconal can be both psychologically and physically addictive over the course of extended treatment.
Seconal reaches peak levels in the body between two to four hours following administration. Most patients eliminate the drug in the urine roughly 28 hours after taking the drug.
Because Seconal depresses central nervous activity, you should exercise caution when mixing it with other central nervous system depressants. The combined effects of sleep medications like Ambien with secobarbital can slow breathing and heart rates to dangerously low levels. Consult with your doctor if you plan on taking cough medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxants, anticonvulsant medications, narcotic pain medications, or medications that treat depression and anxiety. Some herbal supplements and vitamins may also cause complications and should be disclosed to your doctor.
