Nembutal Pentobarbital Sodium is a short-acting barbiturate, chemically designated as sodium 5-ethyl-5-(1-methylbutyl) barbiturate. This is one of the reasons for being more suitable for suicide than longer-acting barbiturates such as phenobarbital.
Nembutal Pentobarbital Sodium is a proven, reliable drug that brings about a peaceful death. Almost no failures are known, despite large statistics (for example, the Swiss euthanasia organisation Dignitas reported 840 exits with no single failure). There are however reports on seemingly slow or painful deaths with Nembutal in capital punishment, although this may be due to poor quality of the drug from compounding pharmacies given intravenously rather than orally.
Nembutal Pentobarbital Sodium is supposedly very difficult to obtain, as its sole remaining human use in most of the world is in liquid form for use as a sedative and anesthetic in hospitals. Also, veterinary Nembutal is a liquid and not in pill-form, which means that it has a shorter shelf life. On the other hand, Seconal (secobarbital), a short acting barbiturate that is as powerful as Nembutal if not more powerful, is still available in capsule form in the USA and probably the UK. However, Nembutal has a bitter taste that require the use of anti-emetics to prevent vomiting when given orally at high dosages.
There are a few views available on the lethal dose, all held by medical professionals. They are illustrated below.
Dr. Nitschke in his The Peaceful Pill Handbook states, “Administration is a matter of injection~250 gm/ml if the nembutal sodium lethal dose is not pure, it will not lead to a reliable and peaceful death. . . . . the lethal dose . If the substance is pure, a purchase of 250mg/ml of 95% pure soldium pentobarbital is more than enough for two adults.”
The research committee of Dr. Admiraal, belonging to a Dutch euthanasia group, deemed that nobody has ever woken up after injestion of 250mg/ml (20ml) of a barbiturate .
The most easily obtainable form today is vials of Nembutal Pentobarbital Sodium, a sterile solution for intravenous or intramuscular injection, typically used for animal anaesthesia or euthanasia. Each mL contains pentobarbital sodium 250mg/ml in a vehicle of approximately propylene glycol, 40%, alcohol, 10% and water for injection, to volume. The pH is adjusted to approximately 9.5 with hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide. The containers come in a clear vial typical for sterile solutions, and should have an untouched protective metal cap if unopened, and be labelled clearly with due date. Dignitas also use some sort of solution, albeit with a higher concentration. The solution may be taken intravenously, for very quick effect as in capital punishment, or orally, see below.
Nembutal Pentobarbital Sodium has also been reported to be available on the black market, particularly from China, in powder form. The purity of this powder is debated, see The Peaceful Pill Handbook. In Australia, a group of seniors have reportedly synthesised Nembutal on their own, using layman knowledge only, details of which can be found on YouTube.
