A Safe Environment An important consideration will be a peaceful, safe environment where one will not be disturbed. Usually this is best achieved at night.
Drinking Alcohol after the Nembutal
The liquid in the glass can be drunk quickly in 2 or 3 swallows, and then followed by some alcohol, usually spirits or liqueur. Although not essential, alcohol is recommended as it alleviates the bitter Nembutal after-taste, and will speed the drug’s action.
Mixing Nembutal with Something Else to take away the Bitter Taste
It is always better to take one’s Nembutal straight. The likely result of mixing the Nembutal with something else (eg. yogurt) is the creation of a greater volume of an equally unpalatable substance. Furthermore, using a spoon to consume the drug, rather than drinking it, can mean a longer time to ingest the 100ml.
Exit has received reports of people falling asleep before all of the drug is consumed. This is dangerous. It is best to drink the 100ml in a few swallows, then drink alcohol.
How the Nembutal Takes Effect The drug is absorbed from the stomach, and as the level in the blood rises, some crosses the blood-brain barrier and effects the part of the brain that controls sleep.
Within a few minutes of taking the drink the person falls into a deep sleep, quite often in mid-sentence when talking to family and friends!
