Which is the best barbiturate for inducing sleep and curing eyestrain headaches?
P.S. I know barbiturates are dangerous and have been replaced by Benzos.

Best answer:

Answer by A.
Barbital is often used for headaches, and I’ve found it to be very effective. Cursory Googling suggests that pentobarbital and secobarbital (short-acting barbiturates) are used for inducing sleep, but I can’t speak to this from experience.

By the way, they haven’t been replaced by benzos; it’s just that in many cases, doctors will favor a benzo instead of a barbiturate because they are often safer (though not free of risk).
