Central Nervous System Stimulants

What are Analeptic Stimulants?

Analeptic Stimulants are Central Nervous System Stimulants that speed up the activity of certain areas in the central nervous system.

The Central Nervous System consists of the nerve complex in the brain and spinal cord, and is responsible for processing and controlling most functions of the body and mind.

Analeptic Stimulants are used to lighten narcosis, stimulate respiratory centres, induce convulsions, and restore depressed central nervous system function.

Drugs in this category are becoming increasingly obsolete for medical use, due to their potentially dangerous side effects, and the introduction of more effective and safe medications for these applications.

Analeptic Stimulants work by affecting the levels of certain neurotransmitters and hormones in the brain, which stimulate the activity of the central nervous system.

The two main categories of Analeptic Stimulants are:
•   Convulsants
•   Respiratory Stimulants
