Excerpt: Primidone is an anticonvulsant of the pyrimidinedione class, the active metabolites of which, phenobarbital (major) and phenylethylmalonamide (PEMA) (minor), are also anticonvulsants. It is used mainly to treat complex partial, simple partials, generalized tonic-clonic seizures, myoclonic, akinetic seizures and since the 1980s it has been a valuable alternative to propranolol in the treatment of essential tremor. Unlike other anticonvulsants such as carbamazepine and valproic acid, primidone is rarely used in the treatment of bipolar disorder or any other psychiatric problem. It is also not widely used in treatment of neuropathic pain, trigeminal neuralgia, or migraine. Primidone has been occasionally used to treat long QT syndrome, cerebral palsy, and athetosis. Primidone was once a mainstay anticonvulsant in the treatment of partial and generalized seizures and was the treatment of choice for secondarily generalized seizures originating in the temporal lobes, especially when combined with phenytoin, but by the early 1980s, carbamazepine had surpassed...

PCP is an illegal hallucinogen that can cause psychotic episodes. It is manufactured by street gangs and distributed around the country. Users can never be sure what they're getting when they buy it. Now sold in many forms, including a convenient and cheap cigarette, PCP is a drug whose use is on the increase. It is easy to find in cities, and it is spreading to suburbs and smaller communities. Use of the drug can result in extreme violence, danger, and severe mental problems. PCP has been linked to some horrifying acts of violence, including murder and cannibalism. Once thought to be a drug of the past, PCP is back and luring a new generation of teens toward destruction. This book exposes the unfathomable lows that a PCP high actually offers--seizures, organ failure, coma, paranoia, mood swings, psychotic breaks, extreme violence, and death. Readers will come away with the certain knowledge that PCP offers anything but a high time.
