Barbiturates

What are barbiturates?

Barbiturates are primarily hypnotic drugs, they are like tranquillisers in that they work by depressing the nervous system.

Barbiturates are prescribed to calm people down but in larger amounts can help them to sleep. Due to the number of fatal accidents from their misuse they are now largely replaced by tranquillisers.

Barbiturates used to be a regular feature on the drugs scene but nowadays are quite rare as very few are prescribed and they are not made illicitly.

Barbiturates are also known as barbs, barbies, red devils and sleepers.

What do barbiturates look like?

Barbiturates are usually sold as capsules with powder inside them.

How are barbiturates taken?

Barbiturates are usually swallowed but sometimes barbiturates are injected and this can be extremely dangerous.

What are the immediate effects of taking barbiturates?

In small quantities barbiturates provide relief from insomnia, anxiety and tension, they might make the user appear drunk. There is a high risk of overdose because the lethal dose is quite close to the 'normal' dose and so you can overdose without knowing it.

What are the long-term effects of taking barbiturates?

Barbiturates are highly addictive and there is a serious risk of overdose. They can also be fatal when mixed with alcohol, tranquillisers or heroin. Heavy users are also at risk of pneumonia and bronchitis.

Long term use of barbiturates can lead to depression, intense tiredness and extreme mood swings.

Drugs include:

Quinalbarbitone Seconal Sodium Seggies 50-100mg
Quinalbarbitone
and amylobarbitone
Tuinal Chewies 100-200mg
 
Street use Barbiturates can be swallowed but more often among heavy users they are dissolved in water and injected.
Drug effect Barbiturates are depressants or downers. They work on the whole nervous system producing a generalised sedation. Respiration and heart rate are reduced and there is a general lowering of anxiety levels. There is also some disruption of thought processes and memory. Higher doses lead to loss of physical coordination and there is "drunken" and sometimes aggressive behaviour.
Dependency Tolerance and dependence develop very rapidly as the level of drug use increases.
Withdrawal symptoms appear within 24 hours of the last dose, peak about the second day and then fade over the next week to 10 days. Symptoms include restlessness, anxiety, increased heart rate, tremor and insomnia. Among heavy users, there may be delirium and seizure, especially following sudden withdrawal, and so doses should be reduced gradually over time.
Long-term use Long-term use of barbiturates can lead to chronic inebriation, aggressive behaviour, impaired memory, judgement and coordination, and insomnia.
Overdose risk Although tolerance to barbiturates develops rapidly, the gap between a safe (for a heavy user) and lethal dose is very narrow and so accidental overdoses are very common with these drugs. Large doses can lead to respiratory failure, coma and eventual death. Heavy users are also at risk from hypothermia because while sedated, there is poor heat retention. Deaths due to hypothermia are not uncommon.
Risks in pregnancy Large doses of some barbiturates during pregnancy have been associated with congenital malformations. However, it is important that the drugs are not stopped immediately because of the risk of seizure. The withdrawal period need not be extended because of the pregnancy and detoxification over eight days is common.
Legal status Barbiturates are a prescription-only medicine and a class B controlled drug (Schedules 2 and 3). This means it is illegal to possess the drug without a prescription or to supply it to others. If prepared for injection, barbiturates become class A drugs. All barbiturates carry the same penalties, as listed below.
  Maximum penalty (if prepared for injection)
  For possession:
For dealing:
Seven years and/or unlimited fine
Life and/or unlimited fine
  Maximum penalty (if in capsule form)
  For possession:
For dealing:
Five years and/or unlimited fine
14 years and/or unlimited fine
