A psychoactive medicine, also known as a psych pharmaceutical, psychoactive specialist, or psychotropic drug, is a chemical that alters sensory system capacity, causing changes in insight, temperament, cognition, perception, or conduct. These substances could be used for restorative, recreational, or research purposes; to consciously improve execution or modify one's awareness; as entheogens for custom, otherworldly, or shamanic purposes; or as entheogens for custom, otherworldly, or shamanic purposes.

Doctors and other medical authorities have recognized a few classifications of psychoactive drugs that are beneficial.

Sedatives, analgesics, anticonvulsant, and anti parkinsonian medications, as well as prescriptions for neuropsychiatric issues such as antidepressants, anxiolytics, antipsychotics, and energizer pharmaceuticals, are all included in the models.

For persons who are reliant on or dependent on other psychoactive drugs, a few psychoactive substances may be used in detoxification and restoration programmers. In an unbiased observable or quantitative method, psychoactive substances frequently produce abstract (but equitably observed) adjustments in consciousness and disposition that the client may see as gratifying and lovely (e.g., rapture or a feeling of unwinding) or beneficial (for example expanded readiness). Substances that are satisfying and so steadily building up can potentially lead to a state of captivity urgent medication use despite unfavorable outcomes. Also, long term use of certain substances can lead to physical or mental dependence, or both, which can lead to significant or mental withdrawal symptoms. Through a combination of psychotherapy, support groups, and other psychoactive substances, drug recovery aims to reduce fixation.

Alternatively, certain psychoactive drugs may be so unpleasant that the individual will never use them again. As a "bad outing," this is especially true for deliriums (such as Jimson marijuana), strong dissociative (such as PCP, ketamine), and outstanding hallucinogenic (such as LSD, psilocybin). Abuse, dependency, and addiction to psychoactive medications have prompted legal action and moral debate. The goal of administrative restrictions on manufacturing, supply, and treatment is to reduce the need of difficult clinical medications. Moral concerns have also been made about the overuse of these pharmaceuticals in clinical settings, as well as their marketing by manufacturers. Famous campaigns to decriminalize or legalese the use of specific athletic medications (such as marijuana) are also ongoing.

People use psychoactive substances for a variety of reasons in order to achieve their goals. These goals are vastly different in different communities. Some chemicals are used for regulated or unlawful purposes, while others are used for shamanic purposes, and yet others are used for restorative purposes.

Social drinking, nootropics, and tranquillizers are examples of different models. Caffeine is the most widely consumed psychoactive chemical on the planet, but unlike many others, it is legal and uncontrolled in almost all wards. 90 percent of adults in North America drink caffeine on a daily basis. Oral ingestion as a tablet, case, powder, fluid, and refreshment; infusion as a subcutaneous, intramuscular, and intravenous course; rectum as a suppository and douche; and inward breath as smoking, vaporization, and insufflation are all used to deliver psychoactive drugs ("grunting"). The effectiveness of each organizational strategy varies from drug to drug.

Fluoxetine, quetiapine, and lorazepam are mental drugs that are taken orally in tablet or case form. Liquor and caffeine are ingested in a refreshment structure; nicotine and marijuana are smoked or dissolved; peyote and psilocybin mushrooms are ingested in an herbal structure or dried; and glasslike pharmaceuticals, such as cocaine and methamphetamine, mare insufflated (breathed in or "grunted").
