Powder Pentobarbital Sodium
Nembutal Powder is a Pentobarbital powder drug from the barbiturate class. It is widely used as a sleeping pill (i.e. hypnotic) or anti-anxiety drug (i.e. sedative).The sodium salt occurs as a white, slightly bitter powder which is freely soluble in water and alcohol but practically insoluble in benzene and ether. Unlike modern sleeping pills, Nembutal is highly lethal in overdose. Because it is very reliable and brings about peaceful death, it is one of drugs of choice for assisted suicide.
