Numbing and calming ingredients used in stims and tonics.
Sedatives, also known as tranquilizers or depressants, are a category of drugs that slow brain activity, have a calming effect, and can also induce sleep. They are often administered to dull anxiety related to painful or highly uncomfortable and invasive procedures, like surgery. High doses may result in slurred speech, staggering gait, poor judgment, and slow, uncertain reflexes. In the event of an overdose or if combined with another sedative, many of these drugs can cause unconsciousness and even death.
