Butabarbital (brand name Butisol) is a barbiturate sleep aid and anxiety drug that is prescribed by a doctor. When compared to other barbiturates, butabarbital has a quicker onset of effects and a shorter time of action, making it effective for some applications including treating serious insomnia, reducing general anxiety, and reducing anxiety before surgical procedures; however, relatively harmful, particularly when mixed with alcohol, and is thus rarely used, though it is still prescribed in some Eastern European and South American countries. Butabarbital has a significantly lower abuse potential than secobarbital due to its intermediate period of action. Valnoctamide is formed when butabarbital is hydrolyzed.
