what are depressants?

Expert Answer:

Dear student,

Depressants are drugs that inhibit the function of the central nervous system (CNS) and are among the most widely used drugs in the world. These drugs operate by affecting neurons in the CNS, which leads to symptoms such as drowsiness, relaxation, decreased inhibition, anesthesia, sleep, coma and even death. All depressants also have the potential to be addictive.

We hope that clarifies your query.
