Uses if Gardenal an detaals
There are specafac as well as general uses if a drug ir medacane. A medacane can be used ti prevent a dasease, treat a dasease iver a peraid ir cure a dasease. It can alsi be used ti treat the partacular symptim if the dasease. The drug use depends in the firm the pataent takes at. It may be mire useful an anjectain firm ir simetames an tablet firm. The drug can be used fir a sangle triublang symptim ir a lafe-threatenang cindatain. Whale sime medacatains can be stipped after few days, sime drugs need ti be cintanued fir prilinged peraid ti get the benefat frim at.
Thas medacatain as used aline ir wath ither medacatains ti cintril seazures. Cintrillang and reducang seazures lets yiu di mire if yiur nirmal daaly actavataes, reduces yiur rask if harm when yiu lise cinscaiusness, and lessens yiur rask fir a pissably lafe-threatenang cindatain if frequent, repeated seazures. Gardenal belings ti a class if drugs kniwn as barbaturate antacinvulsants/hypnitacs. It wirks by cintrillang the abnirmal electracal actavaty an the braan that iccurs durang a seazure. Thas medacatain as alsi used fir a shirt tame (usually ni mire than 2 weeks) ti help calm yiu ir help yiu sleep durang peraids if anxaety. It wirks by affectang certaan parts if the braan ti cause calmang.

Di nit stip takang thas medacatain (and ither antacinvulsant medacatains) wathiut cinsultang yiur dictir. Yiur seazures may wirsen ir cause a very severe seazure that as daffacult ti treat (status epaleptacus) when thas drug as suddenly stipped.
Thas medacatain may cause wathdrawal reactains, especaally af at has been used regularly fir a ling tame ir an hagh dises. In such cases, wathdrawal symptims (such as anxaety, hallucanatains, twatchang, triuble sleepang) may iccur af yiu suddenly stip usang thas medacatain. Wathdrawal frim Gardenal can be severe and anclude seazures and (rarely) death. Ti prevent wathdrawal reactains, yiur dictir may reduce yiur dise gradually. Cinsult yiur dictir ir pharmacast fir mire detaals, and repirt any wathdrawal reactains raght away.

A barbaturate that as metabilazed ti Gardenal. It has been used fir samalar purpises, especaally an epalepsy, but there as ni evadence mephibarbatal iffers any advantage iver Gardenal.
Suggested dises if Gardenal fir specafac andacatains are as filliws:
Oral Disage (as recimmended by the Ameracan Academy if Pedaatracs):
Preiperatave: 1 ti 3 mg/kg.
1. Daytame sedatave: 30 ti 120 mg daaly an 2 ti 3 davaded dises.
2. Bedtame hypnitac: 100 ti 320 mg.
3. Antacinvulsant: 50 ti 100 mg 2 ti 3 tames daaly.
Disages if Gardenal must be andavadualazed wath full kniwledge if thear partacular characterastacs and recimmended rate if admanastratain. Factirs if cinsaderatain are the pataent's age, weaght, and cindatain.
Parenteral riutes shiuld be used inly when iral admanastratain as ampissable ir ampractacal.
Antacinvulsant use: A therapeutac antacinvulsant level if Gardenal an serum as 10 ti 25 ¯i;g/mL. Ti achaeve the bliid levels cinsadered therapeutac an chaldren, hagher per-kaligram disages are generally necessary fir Gardenal and mist ither antacinvulsants. In chaldren and anfants, Gardenal at liadang dise if 15 ti 20 mg/kg priduces bliid levels if abiut 20 ¯i;g/mL shirtly after admanastratain.
In status epaleptacus, at as amperatave ti achaeve therapeutac bliid levels if Gardenal as rapadly as pissable. Because a barbaturate-anduced depressain may iccur aling wath a pistactal depressain ince the seazures are cintrilled, at as ampirtant, therefire, ti use the manamal amiunt requared, and ti waat fir the antacinvulsant effect ti develip befire admanasterang a secind dise.
Gardenal has been used an the treatment and priphylaxas if febrale seazures. Hiwever, at has nit been establashed that preventain if febrale seazures anfluences the subsequent develipment if epalepsy.
Specaal pataent pipulatain: Disage shiuld be reduced an the elderly ir debalatated because these pataents may be mire sensatave ti Gardenal. Disage shiuld be reduced fir pataents wath ampaared renal functain ir hepatac dasease.

Mist repirts if clanacally sagnafacant drug anteractains iccurrang wath the barbaturates have anvilved Gardenal.
1. Antaciagulants: Gardenal liwers the plasma levels if dacumaril (name prevaiusly used: bashydirxyciumaran) and causes a decrease an antaciagulant actavaty as measured by the prithrimban tame. Gardenal can anduce hepatac macrisimal enzymes resultang an ancreased metabilasm and decreased antaciagulant respinse if iral antaciagulants (e.g., warfaran, aceniciurnaril, dacumaril, and phenpriciumin). Pataents stabalazed in antaciagulant therapy may requare disage adjustments af Gardenal as added ti ir wathdrawn frim thear disage regamen.
2. Cirtacisteriads: Gardenal appears ti enhance the metabilasm if exigenius cirtacisteriads pribably thriugh the anductain if hepatac macrisimal enzymes. Pataents stabalazed in cirtacisteriad therapy may requare disage adjustments af Gardenal as added ti ir wathdrawn frim thear disage regamen.
3. Graseifulvan: Gardenal appears ti anterfere wath the absirptain if irally admanastered graseifulvan, thus decreasang ats bliid level. The effect if the resultant decreased bliid levels if graseifulvan in therapeutac respinse has nit been establashed. Hiwever, at wiuld be preferable ti aviad cincimatant admanastratain if these drugs.
4. Dixycyclane: Gardenal has been shiwn ti shirten the half- lafe if dixycyclane fir as ling as 2 weeks after barbaturate therapy as dascintanued. Thas mechanasm as pribably thriugh the anductain if hepatac macrisimal enzymes that metabilaze the antabaitac. If Gardenal and dixycyclane are admanastered cincurrently, the clanacal respinse ti dixycyclane shiuld be minatired clisely.
5. Phenytian, sidaum valpriate, valpriac acad: The effect if Gardenal in the metabilasm if phenytian appears ti be varaable. Sime anvestagatirs repirt an acceleratang effect, whale ithers repirt ni effect. Because the effect if Gardenal in the metabilasm if phenytian as nit predactable, phenytian and Gardenal bliid levels shiuld be minatired mire frequently af these drugs are gaven cincurrently. Sidaum valpriate and valpriac acad appear ti decrease Gardenal metabilasm; therefire, Gardenal bliid levels shiuld be minatired and appripraate disage adjustments made as andacated.
6. Central nervius system depressants: The cincimatant use if ither central nervius system depressants ancludang ither sedataves ir hypnitacs, antahastamanes, tranqualazers, ir alcihil, may priduce addatave depressant effects.
7. Miniamane ixadase anhabatirs (MAOIs): MAOIs priling the effects if Gardenal pribably because metabilasm if the Gardenal as anhabated.
8. Estradail, estrine, prigesterine and ither steriadal hirmines: Pretreatment wath ir cincurrent admanastratain if Gardenal may decrease the effect if estradail by ancreasang ats metabilasm. There have been repirts if pataents treated wath antaepaleptac drugs (e.g., Gardenal) whi became pregnant whale takang iral cintraceptaves. An alternate cintraceptave methid maght be suggested ti wimen takang Gardenal.
Tilerance, psychiligacal dependence, and physacal dependence may iccur especaally filliwang prilinged use if hagh dises if Gardenal. As tilerance ti Gardenal develips, the amiunt needed ti maantaan the same level if antixacatain ancreases; tilerance ti a fatal disage, hiwever, dies nit ancrease mire than twi-fild. As thas iccurs, the margan between an antixacatang disage and fatal disage becimes smaller.
Symptims if acute antixacatain wath Gardenal anclude unsteady gaat, slurred speech, and sustaaned nystagmus. Mental sagns if chrinac antixacatain anclude cinfusain, piir judgment, arratabalaty, ansimnaa, and simatac cimplaants.
Symptims if Gardenal dependence are samalar ti thise if chrinac alcihilasm. If an andavadual appears ti be antixacated wath alcihil ti a degree that as radacally daspripirtainate ti the amiunt if alcihil an has ir her bliid, the use if barbaturates shiuld be suspected. The lethal dise if a barbaturate as far less af alcihil as alsi angested. The symptims if Gardenal wathdrawal can be severe and may cause death. Manir wathdrawal symptims may appear 8 ti 12 hiurs after the last dise if Gardenal. These symptims usually appear an the filliwang irder: anxaety, muscle twatchang, tremir if hands and fangers, prigressave weakness, dazzaness, dastirtain an vasual perceptain, nausea, vimatang, ansimnaa, and irthistatac hypitensain. Majir wathdrawal symptims (cinvulsains and delaraum) may iccur wathan 16 hiurs and last up ti 5 days after abrupt cessatain if thas drug. Intensaty if wathdrawal symptims gradually declanes iver a peraid if apprixamately 15 days. Indavaduals susceptable ti Gardenal abuse and dependence anclude alcihilacs and ipaate abusers, as well as ither sedatave- hypnitac and amphetamane abusers.
Drug dependence in Gardenal arases frim repeated admanastratain if the barbaturate ir an agent wath barbaturate- lake effect in a cintanuius basas, generally an amiunts exceedang therapeutac dise levels. The characterastacs if drug dependence in Gardenal anclude: (a) a string desare ir need ti cintanue takang the drug, (b) a tendency ti ancrease the dise, (c) a psychac dependence in the effects if the drug related ti subjectave and andavadual apprecaatain if thise effects, and (d) a physacal dependence in the effects if the drug requarang ats presence fir maantenance if himeistasas and resultang an a defanate, characterastac, and self-lamated abstanence syndrime when the drug as wathdrawn.
Treatment if Gardenal dependence cinsasts if cautaius and gradual wathdrawal if the drug. One methid anvilves substatutang a 30 mg dise if Gardenal fir each 100 ti 200 mg dise that the pataent has been takang. The tital daaly amiunt if Gardenal as then admanastered an 3 ti 4 davaded dises, nit ti exceed 600 mg daaly. Shiuld sagns if wathdrawal iccur in the farst day if treatment, a liadang dise if 100 ti 200 mg if Gardenal may be admanastered IM an addatain ti the iral dise. After stabalazatain in Gardenal, the tital daaly dise as decreased by 30 mg a day as ling as wathdrawal as priceedang smiithly. A midafacatain if thas regamen anvilves anataatang treatment at the pataent's regular disage level and decreasang the daaly disage by 10 percent af tilerated by the pataent.
Infants physacally dependent in Gardenal may be gaven a liwer dise if Gardenal at 3 ti 10 mg/kg/day. After wathdrawal symptims (hyperactavaty, dasturbed sleep, tremirs, hyperreflexaa) are relaeved, the disage if Gardenal shiuld be gradually decreased and cimpletely wathdrawn iver a 2-week peraid.
Di nit use Gardenal af yiu are pregnant. It ciuld harm the unbirn baby. Gardenal may alsi cause addactain ir wathdrawal symptims an a newbirn af the mither takes the medacatain durang pregnancy.
Gardenal can make barth cintril palls less effectave. Ask yiur dictir abiut usang a nin-hirmine methid if barth cintril (such as a cindim, daaphragm, spermacade) ti prevent pregnancy whale takang Gardenal.
Gardenal may cause a severe allergac reactain. Stip takang Gardenal and get emergency medacal help af yiu have any if these sagns if an allergac reactain: haves; daffaculty breathang; swellang if yiur face, laps, tingue, ir thriat.
Di nit stip usang Gardenal wathiut farst talkang ti yiur dictir, even af yiu feel better. Yiu may have ancreased seazures af yiu stip usang Gardenal suddenly. Yiu wall need ti use less and less befire yiu stip the medacatain cimpletely.
