Homework Help: Drugs

Posted by Aalecia on Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at 6:42am.

I think I know the answer but it is just a wild guess.

Inhalants are not classified as either a stimulant or depressant, because there is such a wide range of inhalants that some are classified in different groups. Therefore, some inhalants are stimulants, and others are depressants.

Is this correct?

A description of the effects of commonly abused inhalants can be found at
http://www.drug-treatmentcenter.org/inhalants.asp

The ocategories described there are household chemicals most often abused by people, not the legitimate drugs taken by inhalation for things like athsma or bronchitis.

But do I have the right idea?

I think you do. The inhalant is only the vehicle by which the drug or chemical is conveyed.



Vehicle?
