Exit, Dignitas....assisted suicide

No actual user reviews?

Well I might use them one day, so I decided to dig in a bit and update myself!

Key info-

- Most Swiss associations request that patients drink sodium pentobarbital, a sedative that in strong enough doses causes the heart muscle to stop beating. Since the substance is alkaline and burns a bit when swallowed. A professional prepares the needle, but it is up to the patient to open the valve that allows the short-acting barbiturate to mix with a saline solution and begin flowing into their vein. (Tough! Permanent OFF switch for life!)

- It usually takes about 20 to 30 seconds for the patient to fall asleep (Longest 30 seconds of one's life)

- Total cost, 7,500 francs without funeral and administrative services and 10,500 francs with those services, usually payable in advance.
(When dying money will be worthless anyway)

Ok, that was all definitely depressing!
