Luminal is the brand name for the drug phenobarbital, a barbiturate tranquilizer. Used to treat sleep, seizure, and anxiety disorders, Luminal is generally safe when taken with a physician’s supervision, although barbiturates have generally been phased out of use due to the risks of overdose and addiction. 

As with other barbiturates, Luminal abuse is extremely dangerous. Users develop a tolerance to Luminal very quickly, and the drug’s sedative effects can be dangerous. Luminal withdrawal symptoms can be severe – as is the case for all barbiturate drugs. Care must be taken when treating Luminal abuse, so it’s important to detox from Luminal at a professional, clinical detox center.
