Abstract

Methaqualone (Quaalude), a nonbarbiturate sedative, was introduced to the American public as a nonaddicting drug with low abuse potential. Unfortunately, it has become the newest drug of abuse. The authors outline the effects of the drug and discuss two patients who had adverse effects after abusing Quaalude. They stress the need for tighter controls on nonbarbiturate sedatives.
