Phenobarbital Indication

For the relief of anxiety, tension, and apprehension, also used as an anticonvulsant for the treatment of epilepsy.

Phenobarbital Pharmacology

R-mephobarbital, a barbiturate, is used in combination with acetaminophen or aspirin and caffeine for its sedative and relaxant effects in the treatment of tension headaches, migraines, and pain. Barbiturates act as nonselective depressants of the central nervous system (CNS), capable of producing all levels of CNS mood alteration from excitation to mild sedation, hypnosis, and deep coma. In sufficiently high therapeutic doses, barbiturates induce anesthesia.

Phenobarbital Absorption

Approximately 50% of an oral dose of mephobarbital is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract.
