WHY are you asking?: 640 mg of Phenobarbital alone (the red bull wouldn't have any influence) can be a lethal dose. If you are thinking of hurting yourself, please get help immediately. There are suicide hotlines (check out Samaritans for your local number), and you can go to any ER or urgent care center, or call your doctor or psychiatrist. A ? like this can be a call for help, and I urge you to find some right away.
