Paradoxical effect. (you'd think it'd sound more Latin/Greek than that. For once someone called a med term by what it actually does.)
Usually refers to the stimulants used to treat ADD/ADHD.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
