Well, phenobarbital is considerably less toxic than other barbiturates in overdose.... but it's not entirely pleasant. It generally causes more fatigue, incoordination, depressed mood and dizziness than benzodiazepines.

Most people who take pheno have been taking it for epilepsy for decades. It is certainly an effective anti-epileptic but causes more sedation than most epilepsy meds so it's rarely used for new patients.
