- Symptoms resulting from central nervous system inhibition are low body temperature, lethargy, drowsiness and coma.
- The following additional symptoms may occur: constriction of the pupils (miosis), dilation of the pupils (mydriasis), fever, sweating, paleness, bluish discolouration of the skin as a result of the decrease in the oxygen content in the blood (cyanosis), palpitations, respiratory depression and cessation of breathing (apnea), nausea and vomiting, psychogenic disorders, increase or decrease in blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, too fast/too slow heartbeat.
