Multiple: I think you mean narcotics, which are a class of very potent analgesic drugs. Common side-effects include constipation, nausea, itching, somnolence, rash, urinary retention. Serious side effects would include respiratory depression and arrest (think of all those rock stars that died from heroin overdoses) and lowering of the blood pressure. Addiction potential is also very high.
