Interesting note about the phenobarbs. I always thought that if I was in an Alamo-style situation, I’d want to inject myself with a speedball beforehand: opiates (analgesic & relaxant) + amphetamines (alertness & meanness).

Not sure of your combat experience but personally, my body does those things under fire anyway. Honestly I wouldn’t take an opiate in combat if you paid me as I rely heavily on my observation and reaction time. Other guys in my unit though were so bat shit crazy wound up they would drink some of our apple jack just to calm em down.
