The Truth About Stimulants

Stimulants, by definition refer to any substance that produces a temporary increase in the functional activity or efficiency of an organism or any of its parts. They have a negative connotation; in some cases, they are referred to as “uppers”, due to their performance enhancing and in many cases, euphoric properties. Stimulants can be legal or illicit; over-the-counter stimulants include ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, caffeine, are generally used as “safer” substitutes compared to amphetamines, cocaines, and “legal” substitutes like Adderall from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD and ADD), while cocaine, its cousin crack cocaine and methamphetamine, commonly known as “meth” are of the illicit nature.
