barbiturate for some time and has developed a barbiturate- tolerance in this way. This is uncommon although occasionally people take the anti-convulsant barbiturate, phenobarbital, for long periods. In these cases, a larger dose of the Nembutal (12gm powder or 2 x 100ml bottles) would be advised.
Some drugs enhance the effect of the Nembutal and can even be employed for that specific purpose. An example is the anti- convulsant Dilantin (phenytoin sodium Fig 15.11).
Dilantin is useful as the drug dissolves in water forming an alkali solution which is compatible with the liquid Nembutal. If you have a bottle of Nembutal which is of uncertain quality, the potency can be enhanced by dissolving 1- 2 gm of phenytoin sodium in the liquid Nembutal before drinking. This process is shown in the accompanying video “Making Nembutal even more effective”.
Although Dilantin is a drug that is controlled, it is relatively easily obtained through Internet mailing sources. It is not a drug that attracts attention.
Other useful Barbiturates
Two other barbiturates that still find wide (although decreasing) use in medicine can also be usefully employed for a peaceful death. These are the anti- convulsant Phenobarbital, and the anaesthetic induction agent Pentothal.
