Stimulants and depressants have opposite effects on the brain. Stimulants activate the central nervous system, while depressants (as their name implies) depress it.

No, just the opposite - they are depressants.

No. Depressants are the opposite of stimulants. Stimulants are drugs that stimulate the brain and central nervous system, speeding up communication between the two. Depressants slow down the activity of the brain and nervous system, slowing down the communication between the two.


Caffeine belongs to the family of stimulants. It is the opposite of depressants, and has no hallucinogenic properties.


Opiates are central nervous system (CNS) depressants. They slow down most bodily functions, including respiration, heartbeat, digestion and confuse thinking and cognition. Some other common CNS depressants are alcohol, barbiturates, and benzodiazepines (tranquilizers).Stimulants ... well ... stimulate the CNS, and essentially have an effect opposite to opiates. They include most drugs prescribed for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy, along with illegal drugs such as methamphetamine and ecstasy. Where people normally use depressants to "chill out," stimulants tend to create feelings of energy, power, and intense concentration.Both depressants and stimulants are highly addictive with prolonged use.


Speed of information processing (as well as increase in blood pressure and heart rate) occurs with use of amphetamines ("Speed"). Stimulants. Opposite are depressants. Speed is a stimulant.

Nope -- amphetamines are psycho-stimulants; sort of the opposite.


What is your goal in taking them? This is probably counter-productive if you're trying to treat ADD or anxiety. These drugs have relatively opposite effects and will cancel each-other out to some extent. If you're trying to get high, it will work, but be aware that combinations of stimulants and depressants are known for being dangerous and quite addictive.


A barbiturate is the opposite of a stimulant. It depresses the body, lowering energy, etc. stimulents do the opposite, and the effects of stimulants can be described as a high. A word of warning: do not mix barbituarates and any simulant. the opposite effects on the body make it harder to notice if you take too much, and many people die because they think they took less than they did.


No. Ampheatamines are the exact opposite of deppresants. They are stimulants which when used for AD/HD medications stimulate the frontal lobe which can increase attention and help with school and work. They increase blood pressure which can be very dangerous when used with other stimulants like caffine, energy drinks and even cold medications. The use of multiple unperscribed stimulants can lead to heart attacks, and even death.

The interactions between drugs of these types are not always pleasant, but in any case it is necessary to ask a pharmacist before combining medications. They will be able to tell you what can and cannot be combined. (Note: anti-depressants stimulate while sleeping pills do the exact opposite, so you might not want to take these at the same time)


Physiologically, drugs change the way chemicals and cells in the brain interact with each other either by disrupting data being transferred from cell to cell, or reacting with chemicals in the brain. This produces changes in the way people think, the way people experience their senses, and the way people behave. Stimulants (Cocaine, Amphetamine, etc) usually increase concentration, increase heartrate, and heighten the senses. Depressents (Heroin, Alcohol, Benzodiazepines) usually do the opposite. And Hallucinogens (LSD, Psylocibe mushrooms, cannabis) interrupt the flow of information from the senses to your brain, which distorts your version of reality. Causing hallucinations and what can only be described as strange distortions of objects, sounds, and feelings. Psychologically, drugs can make the user feel and behave differently depending on the type. Stimulants usually make the user feel focused, sometimes confident (Particularly with cocaine) and euphoric. Depressents can make the user feel happy, care free, they can stop the feeling of pain to a degree. Hallucinogens can make people feel connected with others, connected with their environment and can make them feel very introspective. These feelings have a flipside. Depending on the environment people take certain drugs in, and their feelings before dosing, these psychological effects can be very different. Stimulants can induce paranoia, being focused on the thought people have evil intentions towards you. Depressents can do the same, but can also make people very emotional and sensitive to negative feelings (Particularly alcohol). And hallucinogens can cause feelings of dread, the sensation that you're going to die or bad things are going to happen. Or simply fear of varying degrees. Socially, drugs can strengthen relationships and change a person's personality. Stimulants can cause people to become confident socially. Depressents can lower inhibitions. And hallucinogens can make people introspective, making them look at themselves, or even their surrounding environment and other people in very different ways. Another flipside. Stimulants can make people uncontrollable, too confident, or wreckless or to view others negatively they once thought positively of. Depressents can cause awquard social situations. And hallucinogens can cause people to become very scared of certain things if things go the wrong way. Can't think of many other ways I can answer your question, I'll improve when I can. And I hope I answered it in at least one way you wanted to know. --


It depends on the drug.Hallucinogens and stimulants typically dilate your pupils. Examples- MDMA, "ecstasy"(which could be anything), amphetamines, cocaine, psylocybin-containing mushrooms, LSD, and various other chemical compounds and substances. This dilation depends on the amount and purity of the drug ingested, but typically speaking the dilation is very obvious.Opiates have the opposite effect, and tend to constrict the pupils. Depending on the amount ingested, this can be dramatic or it can be subtle.Marijuana can affect the eyes by either dilating them orconstricting them, depending on how the high affects you. It also tends to dilate the capillaries in the eye, causing the user's eyes to become bloodshot.


To is the opposite of from.


The opposite (antonym) of opposite is same.


No To expand somewhat on this topic: biochemically speaking, tranquilizers do not exert a stimulant effect on the central nervous system (CNS) but the family of drugs known as "minor tranquilizers" which comprises benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, etc.) and similar drugs such as Ambien and Equanil have the side effect of lowering the psychological inhibition threshold, a property they share with alcohol. This can lead to increased sociability, which is also a side effect of CNS stimulants. But unlike stimulants, CNS depressors such as minor tranquilizers and alcohol do not increase alertness levels and physical performance, quite the opposite. Major tranquilizers are a different class of drugs and do not mimic stimulant effect in any form or shape.

Alcohol is considered the classic and most common SEDATING drug. While, caffeine in coffee is STIMULANT. A stimulant is the opposite of a sedative. People take stimulants to stay awake. Therefore, if you take high dose of caffeine you recover faster.


If you have to be opposite on opposite day, that makes it a day, and then there was no opposite day. But that can't be true since you HAVE to be opposite, which means that you have to be normal even though there is an opposite day because you are supposed to be opposite on opposite day, which means that you act normal as if it was a normal day, because that is the opposite of opposite day. (This is a classic "liar's paradox". Since there is already an opposite day, you should have a normal day because that is the opposite of an opposite day. But then it is not an opposite day.)


You could say that you are being "opposite of how other people are" on Opposite Day. If you say the opposite of an opposite, it is a true expression.


The opposite of the opposite of left would be LEFT(;


The opposite of up is down. So, opposite of the opposite of up is up itself.
