Quaaludes There was a time when Quaaludes or methaqualone was quite popular in the United States as a drug for insomnia, and as a sedative and muscle relaxant. The highly addictive properties of Quaaludes led to their withdrawal from the market and classification as a Schedule I controlled substance.

Default Still Prescribed?

Are quaaludes still commonly prescribed as an anti-anxiety drug. If so, what is everyone's opinion on this. Personally, I am not too sure if the therapeutic value of these prescriptions is all that high.

Those are prescription drugs prescribed for pain among other things.
They are downers and as with any prescription drugs they are illegal to have in your possession without a prescription.

I don't think they are still prescribed. My father-in-law always talks about taking these for fun back in high school and I had never heard of them before that. I think if they were still prescribed I would have heard of some one taking them.

I`ve never heard of Quaaludes being a prescribed drug before. Back when I was in my early twenties it was an illegal drug and lots of people liked it.

I have not heard to much news about Quaaludes in recent years so I would guess that their abuse has slowed considerably. Still though they must continue to be a problem for some people.

I think they are still prescribed in a few areas but for the most part, their usage has all but stopped.

As far as I know it is still available through prescription in Canada as I have not heard the contrary.

Quaaludes were taken off the market in 1984. According to my research, they were listed as a Schedule I drug which classifies it as having no legitamite use because it is highly addictive. It is my understanding that Schedule I drugs cannot be legally prescribed. I am not a physician or a pharmacist so I could be wrong about that.
