High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A sedative is a
substance that induces sedation by reducing irritability or
excitement. At higher doses it may result in slurred speech,
staggering gait, poor judgment, and slow, uncertain reflexes. Doses
of sedatives such as benzodiazepines when used as a hypnotic to
induce sleep tend to be higher than those used to relieve anxiety
where as only low doses are needed to provide calming sedative
effects. Sedatives can be abused to produce an overly-calming
effect (alcohol being the classic and most common sedating drug).
At high doses or when they are abused, many of these drugs can
cause unconsciousness (see hypnotic) and even death.
