Is sodium thiopental (truth serum) used in any psychiatric or psychoanalytic therapies?

I presume it is legal for use, since it is Schedule III, and it is administered in surgeries. It clearly has use in criminal interrogation.

I would also take answers that regard the history of its use in psychotherapy.

  • $\begingroup$ Note, that the document of the CIA website is a historical document which is also indicated by the fact that the most recent cited reference is from 1960. Also, I think the wikipedia page gives already many information and reading the resources might already enough to answer your question. $\endgroup$ – awakenting Aug 8 '16 at 19:11
