Non-medical use of prescription drugs has increased throughout the U.S. In 2007, more than 6 million people were using prescription drugs for non-medical purposes. Of these people, approximately 300,000 persons were using sedatives, such as Nembutal, for non-therapeutic reasons. Nembutal is a brand name for pentobarbital, which is no longer available in the United States; nevertheless, the Internet provides easy access to Nembutal on a global basis.
Pentobarbital (the generic name for Nembutal) is mostly used to treat insomnia and anxiety, and it is potentially addictive. Nembutal has also been used to assist in controlling intracranial pressure, to act as an anesthetic, and to place people into a deeper coma. It is very common for people to misuse or abuse sedative drugs such as Nembutal.
A Substance Abuse Treatment advisory indicates that, in 2004, more U.S. residents reported taking prescription drugs for non-medical purposes than those who reported abuse of cocaine, hallucinogens, heroin, and inhalants. It is possible to break the hold that drugs have on you by seeking assistance from a Nembutal addiction treatment center.
Paths to Nembutal Abuse and Addiction
Barbiturates, like Nembutal, are commonly misused and abused. There are two main paths resulting in Nembutal abuse and addiction. The first path is through legitimate usage. Individuals receive prescriptions from their doctors, but consumption over an extended period can cause tolerance, causing individuals to take more than prescribed to relieve their symptoms. When their doctors will not increase the dosage, or decide they must be weaned off Nembutal, they find other means of getting it due to their dependence.
Recreational abuse is another path contributing to Nembutal abuse and addiction. The non-medical use of the drug produces a craving for it that leads to its repeated recreational use. Both paths may cause issues with family, work, school, social situations, and the criminal justice system. Either path you have taken that led to abuse and addiction, addiction treatment can help you get your life back on track.
Taking the Initial Step
Before Nembutal addiction treatment, you must go through detox. If you are taking more than the prescribed amount or taking the drug for non-medical use, you should seek urgent Nembutal addiction treatment.
During Nembutal detox, your heart rate, temperature, blood pressure, and breathing will be monitored, as well as your fluids and electrolytes. The withdrawal symptoms you experience may need sedation. Withdrawal symptoms can rapidly develop into life-threatening problems. If the doctor considers it necessary, you may be given tranquilizers, like Xanax, for a week or more. Hallucinations will be treated as required with antipsychotic medicines. During your stay at a Nembutal detox center, you may undergo a series of tests and receive treatment for medical issues like liver damage that can be caused by pentobarbital use.
Your physician will want to know about any other health issues that may have been worsened by your drug use. Honesty with the doctor is vital; he or she is there to assist you. Treatment may be adversely affected by dishonesty or even a lack of details.
Abruptly stopping your intake of Nembutal may cause withdrawal symptoms, including:
- High blood pressure
You will be under a doctor’s care upon admission into a Nembutal detox facility. The doctor’s goal is to offer you a successful and uneventful detox so you can begin Nembutal addiction recovery. The doctor may order anti-anxiety medication for the relief of your withdrawal symptoms. Trying to detox yourself may fail since you may surrender to your withdrawal symptoms and take Nembutal to relieve them.
