Barbiturates are prescribed for anxiety, depression and insomnia. However, they are infrequently used today, replaced by tranquilizers. They are highly dangerous because of the small difference between a normal dose and an overdose. The lethal dosage of barbiturates varies greatly with tolerance from one individual to another.

Barbiturate intoxication symptoms include: respiratory depression, lowered blood pressure, fatigue, fever, unusual excitement, irrational, dizziness, poor concentration, sedation, confusion, impaired coordination, impaired judgment, addiction and respiratory arrest that may lead to death.

Withdrawal Effects include elevated blood pressure and pulse, sweating, tremors, and possible seizures.
