Barbiturates, Tranquilizers

Barbiturates (derived from barbiturate acid) entered medical practice in the early twentieth century. More than 2,500 barbiturates were synthesized and at the peak of their popularity about 50 species were sold for consumption. To date, only about a dozen of them are accepted. Barbiturate produces a wide range of disorders of the central nervous system, beginning with mild sedation and reaching the coma and is used as a sedative, hypnotic, analgesic, or anti-convulsant. The initial characteristics of the barbiturate species are the following: how quickly they affect and how long the effects from this effect last. Barbiturates are classified into the following types: ultra short and short-acting, as well as medium-long and long-term actions. The ultrashort barbiturates exercise analgesic effects for about one minute after intravenous administration. Examples are those used in medicine: metokhexital (brevital), thiamylal (suritale) and thiopental (pentothal). Drug users who use barbiturate prefer a short-acting or medium-dose drug, namely pentobarbital (nembutal) and secobarbital (amytal). Other barbiturates of short and medium duration of exposure include butalbital (fiorinale, fioricet), butabarbital (butizol), talbutal (lotusat) and aprobarbital (alurate). After using the drug inside the action begins within 15 – 40 minutes, and the effects last up to 6 hours. These drugs are mainly used to calm and call sleep. Veterinarians use pentobarbital as an anesthetic and a means for euthanasia (painless withdrawal from life). Barbiturates of long-term exposure are the following: phenobarbital (luminal) and mefobarbital (mebaral). The impact of these drugs appears after about one hour and lasts for 12 hours. In addition, these drugs are used to calm during the day and treat seizures or a little anxiety. Barbiturates are hypnotics, which, with prolonged use, are addictive. In recent years, they have become a subject of increased interest in substance abuse. Barbiturates are similar in structure to barbituric acid. In medicine, the most widely used are the following: barbitol, barbamil, phenobarbital (also called luminal) and ethanol – sodium. Abuse of barbiturates is typical for patients with alcoholism and drug addiction. This may be due to the fact that the tendency to receive barbiturates is inherited by the same mechanism as the propensity to consume alcohol and drugs. In addition to its main medicinal effect, barbiturates cause a weak euphoria. This is their property more and more attracts people who abuse sleeping pills, and eventually become for them an end in themselves. Unsure of the majority of the danger of uncontrolled taking of barbiturates, they can get into physical dependence on them. And this dependence can be expressed in the form of a tenacious withdrawal syndrome. With a severe overdose of barbiturates (more than 4-6 g per reception), fatal outcomes are possible due to paralysis of the respiratory center and development of coma. It should be borne in mind that with too frequent taking barbiturates, their doses are summed up, which creates a serious threat to health even when taking relatively low single doses.
