Given modern technological breakthroughs, how hard would it be to reverse-engineer the chemical processes involved in psychoactive drugs, in order to create effects of boredom? Even less complicated might be to combine existing drugs with known effects, such as caffeine to induce mental alertness, along with a muscle relaxant to inhibit movement, effectively leaving the user fully aware of his/her surroundings, yet mostly powerless to interact with them. Overall, the user's mental state would very likely indicate copious amounts of boredom, perhaps suffused with a generous dash of frustration if the drug combo was administered against the user's will.
