911Doctor :

Phenobarbital has a long half life

911Doctor :

depending on which reference you use it can be 3-6 days

911Doctor :

typically it takes 4-5 half lives for a drug to be eliminated from the body

911Doctor :

so that would be about 30 days at the outside

911Doctor :

this should mean you will test negative for barbituates on the test (phenobarb)

911Doctor :

so no, it will not show

911Doctor :

standing by

Customer:

Thank you.

911Doctor :

you are most welcome

911Doctor :

do you have any other questions for me?

Customer:

No.

911Doctor :

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
