addicting phenobarbital

Phenobarbital is an old-time barbiturate with the least addiction potential. In fact, it is used as a substitute for benzodiazepines during benzodiazepine withdrawal, since it more comfortable for patients to withdraw from phenobarbital than from their benzodiazepine drug of choice. Phenobarbital is also still used for treating epilepsy.
