Research Facts
Nembutal is a barbiturate, a type of drug which depresses certain brain function. Nembutal was often used to treat sleep disorders and help induce sleep or relax patients, and to induce hypnosis. If too much of the drug is taken, a patient could stop breathing and die of an overdose. Because of this risk, barbiturates, including Nembutal, have been taken out of regular medical use over the past twenty years. However, it is often used in executions in the United States for capital punishment, as well as in assisted suicide.
Nembutal was synthesized at Abbott Laboratories in 1930 by Volwiler and Tabern.
Marilyn Monroe is believed to have died from an overdose of Nembutal.
Nembutal was also used as a basal anaesthetic, and, combined with other drugs, for childbirth. It reportedly did not have a bad taste aside from being slightly bitter, and patients complained little about it in that regard.

Research Facts
Alimemazine (INN), also known as trimeprazine,; brand names Nedeltran, Panectyl, Repeltin, Therafene, Theraligene, Theralen, Theralene, Vallergan, Vanectyl, and Temaril), commonly provided as a tartrate salt, is a phenothiazine derivative that is used as an antipruritic (it prevents itching from causes such as eczema or poison ivy, by acting as an antihistamine).[2] It also acts as a sedative, hypnotic, and antiemetic for prevention of motion sickness. Although it is structurally related to drugs such as chlorpromazine, it is not used as an antipsychotic.[3] In the Russian Federation, it is marketed under the brand name Teraligen for the treatment of anxiety disorders (including GAD), organic mood disorders, sleep disturbances, personality disorders accompanied by asthenia and depression, somatoform autonomic dysfunction and various neuroses.
Alimemazine is not approved for use in humans in the United States. The combination of alimemazine and prednisolone (commonly sold under the brand name Temaril-P) is licensed as an antipruritic and antitussive in dogs.
Poulenc Limited became Rhone-Poulenc after 1990, thus the cards cannot be any older.

Printed on back cover (a): Psychiatric // Consultations // no. 10 // Sleep and // its Disorders // The history of sleep reasearch, treat- // ment of insomnia, dream interpreta- // tion and the importance of caution in // the use of sedative-hypnotics are but a // few of the many aspects of sleep and // its disorders which are covered in this // most comprehesive recorded dis- // course. // The central theme developed by a well // qualified panel, including psychiatrists, // pharmacologist and family physician, // is the recognition and treatment of // common sleep disorders. // The family physician is often called // upon to attend to such sleep com- // plaints as insomnia, early morning // wakening, enuresis, somnambulism // and nightmares. // Often he will find that they are only // part of a larger syndrome which may // or may not require psychiatric atten- // tion.// Although the chemical comforts // afforded by sedative-hypnotics cannot // be expected to initiate remission of // underlying causes, these agents have // been useful in relieving unwelcome // symptoms associated with sleep dis- // orders. // Caution and comprehensive manage- // ment of the whole patient are stressed // by the discussants. // NOVA SCOTIA HOSPITAL // ROCHE // Hoffmann-La Roche Limited // Montreal 378, Canada"
