What Are Stimulants and How Do They Work?

Stimulants, sometimes called “uppers,” are in a class of drugs that increase central nervous system activity. Some of these are street drugs, while others are medications. Both types can be highly addictive and dangerous when abused, which is why even prescription stimulants are heavily controlled.

Stimulant medications can help combat issues like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. When misused or taken by someone who doesn’t need them, they can overstimulate the central nervous system and create an intense, energetic high. Students who abuse Adderall, for example, can very quickly go from productive to devastated by drug addiction.

Commonly Abused Stimulants

Examples of commonly abused stimulant drugs include:

  • ADHD medications (Adderall, Vyvanse, Ritalin, Focalin, Concerta)
  • Narcolepsy medications (Provigil, Nuvigil)
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Bath salts (designer synthetic drugs)

Different drugs’ effects may vary, but common signs and symptoms of stimulant addiction include:

  • Increased energy, hyperactivity
  • Dilated pupils
  • Rambling or speaking too fast
  • Seeming agitated or irritable
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
