Synthetic Narcotics List
Narcotic is a general term that is used to describe drugs that act on the brain and central nervous system in a specific way, and they’re the same as opioids. Opioids are a class of drugs that includes illegal street drugs such as heroin, as well as prescription pain relievers. While the word “narcotic” is often used in the U.S. used to describe different kinds of illegal drugs, it accurately refers only to opioids. Some shared characteristics of opioids and narcotics include their psychoactive or behavior-altering effects on the user and their tendency to cause drowsiness or sedation. Still, even within the broad category of narcotics there are different classifications.
