Nembutal Powder – Nembutal sodium pentobarbital powder 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 sodium pentobarbital powder is sold most of the time in liquid form for use as a sedative and anesthetic in hospitals. 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, EUROPE and probably the UK. Nembutal pills has a bitter taste that require the use of anti-emetics to prevent vomiting when given orally at high dosages.
Administration is a matter of dissolving up to ~50 grams of the powder in ~50 ml of water and drinking. . . . . If the powder is analyzed to be pure, and if ingested in the recommended amounts, Chinese Nembutal powder will (not might) lead to a reliable and peaceful death. . . . . so it is always better to take dosage than the one required for lethal dose. If the substance is pure, a purchase of 95% of pure soldium pentobarbital is suffisant for one adult to drink to die.
Nembutal has also been reported to be available on the black market, particularly Europe and uk, in powder form. The purity of this powder is 95% and up .
Nembutal sodium pentobarbital powder, unlike other lethal drugs, may not require any additional drugs. Only anti-emetic drugs must be taken in advance, in order to prevent any vomiting from occurring. This has been partially endorsed by experts in administration of the death penalty, whereby a pure barbiturate method has been deemed less painful and more successful than prior 3-drug approaches and newer concoctions involving e.g. Midazolam (in the traditional 3-drug approach, a barbiturate was one of the components). There have, however, been reports of less successful attempts, the cause of which have been debated. The use of pentobarbital-only has also been called into question by some experts on capital punishment.
Potentiating the cocktail and masking the taste
It is usually recommended to drink some alcohol immediately after (not prior) to the Nembutal ingestion to potentiate its effect and mask the very bitter taste.
Eating a big meal prior to or after the drug ingestion is not recommended to reduce chances of slow drug absorption or vomiting. Dignitas offers clients chocolates to deal with the bitter taste of the drug.
Time To Death
Experience in the world has notified that after ingesting 20 grams to 50 grams of either nembutal powder or lethal, death generally occurs within few hours and depending of the age and weight of the subject.
A pentobarbital overdose is an amount taken in excess of that which is medically recommended. 5 to ten grams of excess can cause death
In extreme overdose, all electrical activity in the brain may cease, in which case a “flat” EEG normally equated with clinical death cannot be accepted. This effect is fully reversible unless hypoxic damage occurs. Consideration should be given to the possibility of barbiturate intoxication even in situations that appear to involve trauma.
Complications such as pneumonia, pulmonary edema, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, and renal failure may occur. Uremia may increase CNS sensitivity to barbiturates. Differential diagnosis should include hypoglycemia, head trauma, cerebrovascular accidents, convulsive states, and diabetic coma.
