What does MEPHOBARBITAL - ORAL look like?


This medication is used to relieve anxiety and tension. Mephobarbital is also used to control seizures (tonic-clonic and absence types). Controlling and reducing seizures lets you do more of your normal daily activities, reduces your risk of harm when you loose consciousness, and lessens your risk for a possibly life-threatening condition of frequent, repeated seizures. Mephobarbital belongs to a class of drugs known as barbiturates. It works by restoring the balance of certain natural substances (neurotransmitters) in the brain to produce a calming effect.
