Phenobarbital

Phenobarbital

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.

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.

Hi! Yes, I took Phenobarbitol at night since I was a a child and quite effective in controlling my seizures. The only side effect is difficulty waking up. You? I haven’t heard of Tridione though.

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.
