HelloIf they test for these, yes, toxicology will detect them.You need to give me more details about the situation however.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the question is how long after death will a toxicology test be able to detect them will a toxicology test be inconclusive if the body is not found after several weeks or is there some period of time from death to discovery where the toxicolology test will not be able to detect pentobarbital after death that's the question

If the person died from an overdose, and this is suspected, they can check tissue for breakdown products.They would specifically look for this if they new a history of use of the drug.They would be able to detect traces after several weeks by looking at liver tissue, for example. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.

Until the tissues are deteriorated. So if the body were being cared for in the morgue, no way to say.If there is no intact tissue, then they could not test.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok so please please tell me how long for the tissue to be deteriorated inside a house temperature greater than 22 degres c how long would it take how many days would have to pass I can send a bouns if I have an answer 20 days 30 days or more than I can rate
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
how many days would have to pass so theres no way of knowing a person died of an pentobarbital overdose in a house at room temperature greater than 12 degrees cel how many days
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.
noNot very likely with an unattended dead body.Liver would be the only option, and it is likely to be too deteriorated.
