Phenobarbital comes as a tablet, capsule, and elixir (liquid) to take by mouth. You may obtain a specially marked measuring spoon from your pharmacist to be sure of an accurate dose of the liquid. It usually is taken one to three times a day and may be taken with or without food. If you take phenobarbital once a day, take it at bedtime. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take phenobarbital exactly as directed. If you are taking phenobarbital to control convulsions or seizures, follow the exact schedule prescribed by your doctor.

Phenobarbital can be habit-forming. Do not use phenobarbital for more than 2 weeks if it is being used to help you sleep. Do not take a larger dose, take it more often, or for a longer time than your doctor tells you to. Tolerance may develop with long-term or excessive use, making the drug less effective. This medication must be taken regularly to be effective. Do not skip doses even if you feel that you do not need them. Call your doctor if you have convulsions or seizures while taking phenobarbital. Do not stop taking this drug without talking to your doctor, especially if you have been taking it for a long time. Stopping the drug suddenly can cause withdrawal symptoms (anxiousness, sleeplessness, and irritability). Your doctor probably will decrease your dose gradually.

Is it in a red capsule? What we use to call reds a long time ago?

Because if that is what i think it is it affects differently. I'll tell ya about my experience with them. It was not good.

Some one told me "space tabs" really help with withdrawl (withdrawal), I know they have phenobarbital in them - but they are also supposed to help with the night sweats, sleeping, anxiety etc.

I loved that Topamax! Great for the Migraines.Now look, I not kidding, If your hair starts falling out, It's the Topamax!! I was losing alot during, washing, brushing, drying, etc... Took them forever to find that it was Tompamax. It's a side effect.. But guess they have it buried! lol..lol...
Just wanted to give a heads up... Good luck with it... Other than that I loved it..
