5-Methoxy-N-methyl-N-isopropyltryptamine (also known as 5-MeO-MiPT and moxy) is a lesser-known psychedelic substance of the tryptamine class. 5-MeO-MiPT is chemically related to tryptamines like 5-MeO-DMT and 5-MeO-DiPT. It produces its psychoactive effects through activity at serotonin receptors in the brain.
The synthesis and pharmacology of 5-MeO-MiPT was first reported in 1985 by David Repke and Alexander Shulgin. So, its effects in humans was documented in Shulgin’s book TiHKAL (“Tryptamines I Have Known and Loved”).
Anecdotal reports describe 5-MeO-MiPT’s effects as highly stimulating and mildly entactogenic, lacking in typical psychedelic visual distortions. Many users report strong physical and tactile effects that serve to enhance libido and sexual pleasure. An unpleasant “body load” is also often reported at common to high doses, marked by muscle tension and nausea.
Very little is known about the pharmacological properties, metabolism and toxicity of 5-MeO-MiPT, and it has a limited history of human use. It has been sold online as a research chemical. It is highly advised to use harm reduction practices when using this substance.
