Do not take this medication if you are allergic to phenobarbital, or if you have porphyria.

Before taking phenobarbital, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have:

Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are pregnant. It could cause harm to the unborn baby. Use an effective form of birth control, and tell your doctor if you become pregnant during treatment.

Phenobarbital can make birth control pills less effective. Ask your doctor about using a non-hormone method of birth control (such as a condom, diaphragm, spermicide) to prevent pregnancy while taking phenobarbital.
