What Is A Depressant?
So what is a depressant? Alcohol, painkilling opioids, tranquilizers and sedatives are all under the umbrella of depressant, or “downer” drugs. They limit activity of the central nervous system, causing calm, reduced pain or sleep. The effects of depressants also include dependence and eventual addiction. When misused, depressants can cause serious physical and mental damage.
