PhenobarbitalPhenobarbital is used for epilepsy seizures , anxiety, and for short term it can be used for insomnia. Phenobarbital slows down the activity of your nervous system and slows down the brain activity. It is in a group of drugs called barbiturates. When taking phenobarbital for insomnia you shouldn’t take it any longer than 2 weeks. If taken longer than 2 weeks you could have some of these symptoms slurred speech, confusion, and unsteadiness. One of the worst symptoms could be unconsciousness and having trouble breathing.

Are You Addicted

When taking phenobarbital for long periods of time your tolerance can build up and your doctor will have to adjust your dosage up so that you can still get the same effects as when you first started taking it. Some common side effects of it are depression, stomachache, drowsiness, dizziness, headaches, and vomiting. Some of the most severe side effects of taking the phenobarbital are joint and muscle pain, nightmares, and constipation.

Memory Loss

When you miss a dose you should go ahead and take it as soon as you remember. While taking it you could have memory loss. You could be driving down the road ,on the phone or even eating and you will not even remember doing these things. Phenobarbital could be very habit forming so you need to take it the way the doctor prescribed it to you.
