Is Oxycontin a stimulant?

Drug users frequently take stimulants and opiates at the same time. They have a synergistic effect. You may have heard the term "speedball" before. A speedball is a combination of cocaine and heroin that is usually injected but can be smoked or insufflated. When you combine coke and heroin you feel the clean energy of cocaine and the warm euphoria of heroin - many think that this is the ultimate high. Other stimulants besides cocaine, such as adderall, can be used of course, but the mix of smack and blow are the gold standard. Personally I stay far away from speedballing, because it is incredibly addicting and incredibly easy to overdose. John Belushi and River Phoenix both died from speedballing. With that said, if you're looking to potentiate opiates you can take a small dose (I take 10-15 mg) of amphetamine orally about half an hour before taking opiates. I have found this to be safe for me, but everyone's body chemistry is different - know yourself before you start mixing.

How do drugs affect the user?

Drugs are defined as any substance that alters normal body function. Non-psychotropic drugs include pain relievers (such as paracetamol or ibuprofen), calcium carbonate (such as TUMS), and many more. Psychotropic drugs effect the mental state of users. There are three most common psychotropic drug categories: stimulants, depressants, and hallucinogens. Stimulants increase brain activity and heart activity, leading to increased mental focus and memory making the user feel more alert while also making physical tasks less tiring. Stimulants range in strength, caffeine being a mild stimulant and methamphetamine being a strong stimulant. Nicotine, in cigarettes is also a stimulant. Depressants decrease brain activity and heart activity, leading to shortened attention span and drowsiness. Depressants include alcohol, opiates, and barbiturates. Some depressants bring euphoria. Hallucinogens act on certain receptors within the brain altering perception. Most hallucinogens combine with a stimulant (as in the case of MDMA) or a depressant (marijuana), and cause varying degrees from small visual hallucinations to complete disconnection from reality. Marijuana, ecstasy, salvia, and peyote are all examples of hallucinogens.
