What should I know about belladonna alkaloid and phenobarbital tablets?

Belladonna alkaloid and phenobarbital tablets could be addictive and should only be used as prescribed. This medication should not be taken with potassium supplements, without direct instructions from your doctor. You may experience a decrease in sweating, so you should take precautions against heat stroke in hot weather or while exercising. Alcohol and other medications that might cause drowsiness should not be taken while you are using belladonna alkaloid and phenobarbital, as this may increase the sleepiness. This medication may impact the effectiveness of birth control pills, so you may need extra precautions to avoid pregnancy during treatment.
