Long term effect of phenobarbital and cognition?

Answers (1)

6 Nov 2011

Hello Sparty94. Its a fair question, and I think that the amount, of phenobarbital and how long you've been on it, will play a role into our cognitive abilities. How we react really depends on what I just said and the individual, because we all respond to drugs differently. I might only guess, but I think that the sedative properties, almost often larthgic behaviour that accompanies that which comes from taking it, will play a role. Permanet damage of sorts? I can't really say. There are people who have been taking phenobarbital, for years, and do very well on it. Any drug, when taken over long periods of time, will play a role, in one way or another. Thats a certain. Very best to you,
