Stimulants General Effects

Stimulants differ in strength, from chocolate and tea on the mild end of the spectrum to crack cocaine and methamphetamines on the concentrated and powerful end. All stimulants increase the chemical and electrical activity in the central and peripheral nervous systems. Mild or low dose stimulants can boost energy, raise the heart rate and blood pressure, increase respiration, reduce appetite, and subdue thirst and hunger. They also make an individual more alert, confident, anxious, agitated and aggressive.
