amytal addiction information

Historically, it’s been used for its ability to sedate, and one of its first uses was to help soldiers who had been traumatized in battle during the second World War. It wasn’t long before the medication was discontinued for that purpose because of the effects it had on the soldiers.

Amytal’s generic name is amobarbital, and it has been used in the form of sodium amobarbital as a kind of truth serum. It’s been found to have the ability to help people recall memories. However, it was found to be so powerful that hallucinations or delusions could result from the use of it, and so the memories that were recalled were not always accurate.

Because of its potency, Amytal is no longer prescribed in tablet form. The only way to get it legally is via IV. It is still used in patients who are about to have surgery because of how compatible it is with anesthesia. Even so, it’s still possible to obtain it illegally, and on the streets it goes by the names downers, blue devils, blue velvet and blue heavens.

If you’re addicted to Amytal, you are involved in a very dangerous addiction. However, there’s no need to worry because some of the best Amytal rehab centers can help you through your recovery.
