CNS stimulants

What are CNS stimulants

Central nervous system (CNS) stimulants are medicines that boost brain activity. They increase energy, attention, and alertness, and elevate blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate. The exact mechanism of action of these agents or receptors they may affect, is not known.

CNS stimulants typically are addictive, and carry a high risk for abuse and dependence. Withdrawal syndromes on discontinuation are common. CNS stimulants are still used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), narcolepsy, and weight loss.
