I'm writing a play and the characters are wearing bracelets through which a drug is injected (or is there another way a drug can get into the bloodstream through a bracelet controlled by another individual). The characters drop to the floor and slowly regain consciousness, which is why they crawl across the floor until they stand up and put on a show and appear to be content and full of energy. Devil's breath is used to take away peoples free will and make them coherent. That'd explain the show. But is it realistic that the characters pass out, regain consciousness and then do whatever they're supposed to? And does a daily use make them feel drained after a while? So that when they're not on the drug they could be losing their minds and suffer from anxiety?
Thank you in advance for the response!
