Phenobarbital medication is used to treat insomnia and as a sedative to relieve symptoms of anxiety or tension. Phenobarbital tablets are also prescribed to reduce some forms of seizures. The active ingredient works by slowing down the brain and nervous system.
Phenobarbital is also used to lower bilirubin levels in infants. Bilirubin is a substance that is produced by the body and excreted by the liver. Bilirubin elimination from the body of the newborn is slower, so the drug is prescribed to speed up the process.
Phenobarbital suppresses thyroid hormone production. Peripherally reduces smooth muscle tone (has an antispasmodic effect).

Phenobarbital is a barbiturate medication used to treat several conditions, including seizures, anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia. The drug is sometimes given to patients who have been treated for chemical dependency (an example, from barbiturates).
Epilepsy is a condition that occurs in the central nervous system. An epileptic seizure is an expression of brain dysfunction consisting of excessive, uncontrolled bioelectrical discharges in neurons. The key here is the excessive excitability of the nerve cells.
A seizure can take many forms, such as typically generalized seizures, mild muscle tremors, or simply changes in a person's behavior. Phenobarbital (known anticonvulsant drug) controls epileptic seizures, depresses the central nervous system, and is sometimes used as a sedative. The drug is used to control tonic-clonic and simple partial seizures.
Phenobarbital when interacting with other medications may affect their effectiveness:
Phenobarbital can affect the absorption of calcium from food and drugs, which leads to a deterioration of bone calcification. Sudden discontinuation of barbiturates may increase the effect of anticoagulants (coumarin derivatives). Alcohol greatly enhances the effects of barbiturates, which can lead to collapse and even death.

What you should know about brand and generic drug alternates.
Prescription drugs are a costly medical expense, especially for the elderly, those who are chronically ill and those with no or minimal drug coverage on their Health Insurance. However, each state in America has a law that allows pharmacists to substitute less expensive generic drugs for many brand name products. Depending on your prescription needs, your savings could be very significant. Before you talk with your doctor or pharmacist about switching, there are things you should know about generic drugs.
What is the difference between a generic and brand name drug?
Nothing except for the name, packaging, and the price, a generic drug is called by its chemical name; manufacturers assign their own brand name. The generic products have the same ingredients. Standard practice and most state laws require that a generic drug be generically equivalent to its brand name counterpart. That is, it must have the same active ingredients, strength, and dosage form, be it a pill, liquid, or injection. The generic drug also must be therapeutically equivalent. It must be the same drug chemically and have the same medical effect.
Do all drugs have generic equivalents?
No. Some drugs are protected by patents and are supplied by only one company. However, when the patent expires, other manufacturers can produce its generic version. Currently, about half the drugs on the market are available in generic form.
Will my doctor automatically prescribe generic drugs?
It depends on the physician. You can ask your doctor to write a prescription permitting substitution of a generic drug product when appropriate or to define the chemical name for the prescription. This will ensure you are purchasing the correct Mexico drug. Generic products will be as effective and less costly. Or, you can order only brand name products if you wish. www.mexicanrxpharm.com Mexico pharmacy offers a wide selection of both Brand Name & Generic Mexico medicine. Our Mexican generic drugs are of the highest quality, selected only from the most reputable manufacturers, and are safe to replace brand name medications costing much more.
