They are also abused for their sleep-inducing effects. Common barbiturate drugs include Fioricet, Amytal, and Nembutal. Barbiturates, such as Amytal, are susceptible to addition. This is because of their tranquilizing and euphoric effects. Hence, barbiturate addiction is often treated long-term with benzodiazepine.
