Re: Sodium barbital

From:Lee & Peggy Wenk <>

What was the reason your pharmacy said they will "no longer be allowed
to carry sodium barbital"?

WHO said they couldn't carry it? WHAT was their reason? Was this
a decision within the pharmacy or hospital, to not have to pay the
additional charges on a controlled substance? Or are they no longer
able to find a vendor?

Some background would be helpful. Thanks.
