Does everything belong here?[edit]

Should amphetamine and ritalin make it into this template

Resolved: I created the "Controversial hallucinogens" section in this template.

One of L. E. Hollister's criterias for establishing that a drug is hallucinogenic is that addictive craving should be absent. --David Hedlund (talk) 03:25, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Uniformity in naming[edit]

In the interest of uniformity, please correct all N-benzyl compound naming to the established '25X-NBXXX' nomenclature. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.156.201.16 (talk) 19:57, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

GABA-A "agonists"[edit]

Only muscimol and gaboxadol are true GABA-A-Agonists, i.e. bind to the same site of the receptor as GABA itself. The pharmacology of ibotenic acid beside of being a prodrug to muscimol is quite unknown, as far as I know. The "Z-drugs" (es)zopliclone, zolpidem and zaleplon, on the other hand, are not direct agonists, but positive allosteric modulators, just as the benzodiazepines, which allosteric binding site on the GABA-A-receptor they also share. Since this different pharmacological actions lead to huge differences in the subjective effects of those drugs, I really don't think that they should be lumped together. --Diogenes2000 (talk) 17:01, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
