When used correctly and as prescribed, they be can used in life-enhancing ways. However, even when prescribed correctly, addiction could be a very real problem. They are highly addictive, and need to be monitored very closely, because the correct dosage varies from person to person.

There are many long-term effects due to abuse of Barbiturates. Some of these effects include memory loss, respiratory depression and arrest, liver damage, central nervous system damage, decreased functioning overall, and more. It can also adversely affect many of your personal relationships, leading to strained relationships, divorce, complete separation, and more. But while these effects are imminent if you do not change your path, healing is possible when you step into recovery and detox in a controlled and stable environment.
Withdrawal symptoms from barbiturates can vary person to person, but typically there are a few that run across all withdrawals- these include nausea, sleep issues, hallucinations, seizures, anxiety, high fevers, and more. These withdrawal symptoms are serious, and the reason why at-home withdrawal and recovery just won’t work. In some cases, withdrawal will lead to a hospital visit depending on how severe the withdrawal, and it might be hard to make that determination if you are just doing it yourself.
