AMT

Alpha-Methyltryptamine (alfa-meth-ill-trip-ta-meen) also known as AMT was originally developed as an antidepressant in the 1960’s but resurfaced as a recreational drug in the 1990’s. Its popularity has grown in recent years and it has been found in some tablets in Scotland marketed as MDMA. 
 
AMT is a long lasting psychedelic (trippy) stimulant (upper) drug similar to LSD and MDMA which can make you feel energetic and upbeat.  It also increases your heart rate and breathing.  People using it can experience a rush, greater appreciation of music and visual hallucinations as well as nausea and vomiting, aching muscles, sleeplessness and anxiety.  
 
It comes in an off white, pale pink/orange or bright orange powder and is reported to have a distinctive plastic smell.  It is often swallowed (bombed), snorted or smoked.  An average dose for swallowing will give around 50 bombs from a gram and for smoking around 160 doses.  These doses should not be taken as recommendations.
 
Snorting often causes effects to come on quicker than swallowing and it can be a more intense experience although effects tend to last longer when the drug is swallowed.  Smoking AMT is reported to produce more stimulant type effects, with faster onset and shorter duration.
