GHB and barbs are quite different in how they react in the brain. I have been on fioricet for about six months before the GHB experience (used for migraines) , and yes I must admit to experimentation with high levels of fioricet. It contains butalbital (sp?), one of the weaker barbs. I never had the same reactions from the barbs, but then again they were high doses of a weak barb so who knows. Are you saying that GHB and the barbituates are in the same class, or work in the same manner? If so, I would have to dissagree. There side effects from abuse may be similar, but the two drugs are apples and oranges.

Also, GHB detox is very uncomfortable physically, but relatively harmless when compared to going cold turkey on barbs, which has the potential to put you into seizures and death.

One more thing, the effects I had seem to be related to excess dopamine. Then again this is speculation.
