Nembutal

This is a restricted or nonstandard commodity

Sodium Pentobarbital for Injection is Commercially Available
Update: July 20, 2016

On December 22, 2011, the U.S. subsidiary of H. Lundbeck A/S sold Nembutal to Oak Pharmaceuticals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Akorn, Inc., which is now offering the drug for veterinary purposes. Nembutal can be purchased through Henry Schein Animal Health, the supplier that University of Pittsburgh investigators must use to obtain controlled substances, in both 20 ml and 50 ml bottles. Consequently, Henry Schein Animal Health should be the supplier for future orders of Nembutal.

Should an investigator require a custom formulation of Nembutal that is not commercially available, use of Heiber's Compounding Pharmacy may be permitted. In such a case, an investigator must obtain a prescription in order for the drug to be compounded by Hieber's pharmacy.

Please note that Nembutal is a schedule II controlled substance, and must be obtained, stored, dispensed, and administered in accordance with the University's controlled substance guidelines
