Reason: To help me sleep; to calm me in certain situations Date: 15 March 2009
Side Effects
I have not had tuinal since the 1970s mainly because I cannot find them. Also, I sleep very badly, sometimes not any all night but current sleeping pills do not work. I never took tuinal all the time just occasionally, and I feel like they almost saved my life. I would sometimes be so anxious that I couldn't attend church, a movie, anything where I wasn't free to leave at a moment's notice. Tuinal helped me to get through this, and I took it off and on for about thirty years with no dependency problems when I quit. Surely wish I could get a few now and have a good nights sleep...
