Barbiturates

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Barbiturates are a group of drugs derived from barbituric acid. They suppress central nervous system activity and are effective anxiolytics, antiepileptics, sedatives and hypnotics. Barbiturates enhance the action of GABA by binding to the GABA-receptor/chloride channel.

They are classified into three groups according to their duration of action
