Jump to: navigation, search

Anxiety suppression can be described as the partial to complete suppression of a person’s ability to feel anxiety, nervousness, general unease, and negative feelings of psychological tension. The experience of this effect may decrease anxiety-related behaviour such as rumination, muscular tension, panic attacks, and restlessness.

Psychoactive compounds which consistently induce this specific effect are referred to as anxiolytics. These compounds typically include benzodiazepines, alcohol, GHB, gabapentinoids, and various other GABAergic depressants. However, this effect can also occur more indirectly under the influence of a large variety of other pharmacological classes which include but are not limited to opioids, dissociatives, and SSRIs.
