Active Ingredient History

  • Now
Methohexital is an ultrashort-acting barbiturate widely used in dentistry because of its rapid onset, predictable effects, and short duration of action. It was marked under the name brevital sodium for the intravenous anaesthesia. It has also been commonly used to induce deep sedation. Like other barbiturates, methohexital exerts its effects through the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor complex. By binding to its own receptor on the complex, methohexital augments the inhibitory effect of GABA on neurons and additionally can exert a similar effect independent of GABA.   NCATS
