As a child, I took Phenobarbital at night, and Tridione in the daytime. Anyone else heard of this? My new Dr.'s give me funny looks, but I know what I was taking. I was 17 when I stopped taking it.

I’ve been on phenobarbital for 43 years and it has been effective in controlling my seizures. I am so grateful. About ten years ago, I had to add trileptal as an added protection.

I think it's one of the early medications. I'm sure there have been problems either abuse or misuse. There are much better meds available now

My doctor put me on it when I was first diagnosed 46 years ago with Dilantin. First the Dilantin poisoned my liver, spleen and bone marrow. So that was not pretty. Then the Phenobarbital started working in reverse as my body was rejecting it. Created severe depression. It also killed my short term memory, which, til today, is still shot.
