Narco Analysis

  1. A truth drug or truth serum is a psychoactive medication used to obtain information from subjects who are unable or unwilling to provide it otherwise.
  2. The unethical use of truth drugs is classified as a form of torture according to international law.
  3. In the latter context, the controlled administration of intravenous hypnotic medications is called “narcosynthesis” or “narcoanalysis.”
  4. It may be used to procure diagnostically- or therapeutically- vital information, and to provide patients with a functional respite from catatonia or mania.
Active chemical substances
  • Sedatives or hypnotics that alter higher cognitive function include ethanol, scopolamine, 3quinuclidinyl benzilate, temazepam, and various barbiturates including sodium thiopental (commonly known as sodium pentathol) and sodium Amytal (amobarbital)
  1. According to prevailing medical thought, information obtained under the influence of intravenously administered sodium amytal can be unreliable; subjects may mix fact and fantasy in that context.
  2. Some observers also feel that amobarbital does not increase truth-telling, but merely increases talking; hence, both truth and fabrication are more likely to be revealed in that construct.
