Depressants Addictions – Majority of Depressants are Addictive

Depressants are a family of substances that diminish the function or activity of a specific part of the body. The abuse of barbiturates or benzodiazepines can lead to depressants addictions. Alcohol is also a highly addictive depressant, as well as some narcotics and anaesthetics. Some first generation antihistamines also fall into the depressant category.

Because of the shear number and addictive nature of depressants presently in use, it is essential that addiction researchers are able to keep pace with current trends. Search frequency research helps these substance abuse professionals track the popularity of these drugs through query analysis. Comparing and contrasting search results often reveals interesting developments.

Anti-depressant Drugs – List Continues to Grow

There are at least eight types of anti-depressants drugs. Many of these will be prescribed in combination with depressant medication, especially if the patient also suffers from anxiety and sleep disturbances, as well as depression. Throughout the popular search phrases listed in Graph 1 below, there are queries for both depressant drugs and anti-depressant drugs. The searches for anti-depressant drugs, however, far outnumber those for depressant drugs, as evidenced by the difference in query numbers for the first phrase, “anti-depressants” at 92,153 queries and the third phrase, “depressant drugs” at only 35,495 over a one-year period.
