Nicotine Makes You Sleepy?


Recommended Posts

Actually, nicotine is unusual in that it acts as both a stimulant AND a depressant - which is one reason why it is so addictive. it calms the nerves while creating a rush of energy, and has a mind-clearing effect similiar to caffeine...the more you vape, the more u want. nicotine is incredibly hard to kick because it is both physically and psychologically addictive.

Many medications have opposite reactions in certain people...nicotine is one of these. can be a stimulant, a depressant or both.

Benadryl is another one....for most people it makes sleepy, some it makes hyper.

Ritalin or other ADD meds are an amphetamine or the equivalent to speed...in those with ADD its a depressant, in the rest of the world its a stimulant......

It all depends on the individual and the individual reaction

Benadryl knocks me out cold lol. Ashley can take it without any problems and she's fine. I take it, 25 minutes later and I'm snoring. It's interesting how different chemicals/medications effect (affect?) people differently.
