Can I get hooked on phenobarbital?

Phenobarbital can become addictive, so be very careful when taking it and follow directions exactly. Do not take a larger dose than you should or more often than prescribed. If you are taking it for sleeping problems, you should stop after two weeks. Talk with your doctor about any personal or family history of drug or substance abuse.
