If a barbiturate has medium lipid solubility, what will it’s onset and duration of action be like? Give examples of this kind of barbiturate and their use.
Onset is not too slow, not too fast. Duration of action longer than high lipid soluble drugs, but shorter than low lipid soluble drugs. Examples are: Amo (amytal), Seco (seconal), Pentobarbital (nembutal). All used for surgical anthestia and sleep induction.
