What is pentobarbital (Nembutal) used for?

Pentobarbital (Nembutal) is used in the hospital as a sedative and hypnotic for people who have difficulty sleeping or for medication before a procedure requiring general anesthesia. It’s also used to treat seizures when other antiseizure medications don’t work well. Additionally, some studies suggest that the possible brain-protective effects of pentobarbital (Nembutal) may be helpful for brain injuries or trauma; your provider will decide if this medication will be beneficial for your condition.

How does pentobarbital (Nembutal) work?

Pentobarbital (Nembutal) is a barbiturate. It works by raising the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which is a chemical in your brain that slows your brain activity.

How is pentobarbital (Nembutal) given?

Pentobarbital (Nembutal) is given by a healthcare provider in the hospital as a continuous injection into the veins (intravenous or IV) or as an injection into the muscle. The typical dose varies from one person to another because it depends on your body weight, your medical conditions, why you need to receive pentobarbital (Nembutal), and how it’s given to you. Your provider will calculate the right dose to give you.

What are the possible side effects of pentobarbital (Nembutal)?

Possible side effects include sleepiness, confusion, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, and slowed breathing and heart rate. This isn’t a complete list, so be sure to discuss what to expect with your provider before they give you the medication, if possible. Let them know about any side effects you think you have after receiving pentobarbital (Nembutal).
