There are many different kinds of depressants: barbiturates and benzodiazepines, alcohol, narcotics (opiate derivatives), sedative-hypnotics, antihistamines (such as benadryl,) and some anesthetics (such as ether, chloroform, ketamine and phencyclidine).

Opiates are derived from opium, produced by the opium poppy. Most of the others, with the exception of alcohol, are produced in the laboratory.
