Based on a review of 51 cases of NBOMe toxicity reported in the literature, it appears that rhabdomyolysis is a relatively common complication of severe NBOME toxicity, an effect that may be linked toNBOMe-induced seizures, hyperthermia, and vasoconstriction.

In vivo drug discrimination techniques and in vitro receptor/transporter methods have been applied to understand the actions of these phenylalkylamines and their mechanisms of action, and certain receptors and monoamine transporters have been implicated as playing major roles in theactions of these abused agents in a complex and, at times, interwoven manner.

Alterations in Body Temperature, Corticosterone, and Behavior Following the Administration of 5-Methoxy-Diisopropyltryptamine (‘Foxy’) to Adult Rats: a New Drug of Abuse

The data demonstrate that 5-MEO-DIPT alters the ability of an animal to perform certain cognitive tasks, while leaving others intact and disrupts the endocrine system.

Critique of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists Psychedelic Therapy Clinical Memorandum, Dated May 2020

The RANZCP’s position against medically controlled patient access to 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine and psilocybin-assisted therapies is based on outdated, irrelevant, misinterpreted, and misinformed evidence.

5-HT3 Receptor Ligands and Their Effect on Psychomotor Stimulants



In vitro O-demethylation of the psychotomimetic amine, 1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylphenyl)-2-aminopropane.

In vitro O-demethylation of 1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylphenyl)-2-aminopropane (1, DOM, STP) is investigated using a sensitive and highly selective stable isotope dilution assay, and it is observed that rabbit liver homogenates biotransform the amine 1 to its 2-O-dem methyl, 5-O -demethyl, and bis (O- Demethyl) metabolite metabolites.

Lysergic acid diethylamide and 2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylamphetamine are partial agonists at serotonin receptors linked to phosphoinositide hydrolysis.

LSD partially antagonized the effect of 5-HT in the choroid plexus, consistent with a partial agonist effect at the 5- HT-1c receptor in this tissue.

The pressor action of 2,5‐dimethoxy‐4‐methylamphetamine in rats

The hallucinogen, 2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylamphetamine (DOM or STP) increases the systolic blood pressure and exerts other autonomic effects in man and animal brains, and exhibited a potent pressor action in rats.

Cardiovascular effects of 2, 5-dimethoxy-4-methylamphetamine (DOM, STP).

It was concluded that DOM had a direct stimulatory effect on serotonin receptors and was not antagonized by propranolol, atropine, pyrilamine or bulbocapnine.

The time-dependent stimulus effects of R(-)-2,5-dimethoxy-4-methamphetamine (DOM): implications for drug-induced stimulus control as a method for the study of hallucinogenic agents

The findings suggest that the pharmacodynamic parameters ofd-LSD and (−) DOM-induced stimulus control differ, and the time of onset for the stimulus effects of (−)DOM is markedly longer than that of LSD in the rat.

Role of serotonergic 5-HT2A receptors in the psychotomimetic actions of phencyclidine.

The present study indicates that the behavioural responses to PCP, ketamine and dizocilpine do not involve a direct interaction of these compounds with the 5-HT2A receptor.
