    A case of methylone mixed with 5-MEO-MIPT by vendor?

    Combined intoxication with methylone and 5-MeO-MIPT.

    Although preclinical studies suggest that methylone (2-methylamino-1-[3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl]propan-1-one) and 5-MeO-MIPT (5-methoxy-N-methyl,N-isopropyl tryptamine) may have psychostimulant properties, the scientific reports about the clinical effects of these agents are scant. We describe a 27-year-old male patient with substance intoxication after a single ingestion of the mixture of methylone and 5-MeO-MIPT. Though he bought the drug as pure methylone powder via an internet order, our chemical analyses indicated that the drug was composed of about 60% methylone (120 mg) and 38% 5-MeO-MIPT (76 mg). This case report suggests that clinicians should be alert to the possibility of the emergence of methylone or 5-MeO-MIPT intoxication, and substance-related mental disorder may be complicated by combined use of other psychoactive drugs.

    Damn this is dangerous, just taking this mixture :( 76mg of 5-meo-mipt

    I found 12mg more the enough!

    Holy shit - If this is true this source needs to be outed. This is exactly the kind of irrresponsible crap which brings irreversible negative publicity, scheduling and arrests! Not to mention that such a high dose of 5meomipt could be deadly, esp with some of the methylone doses some people like to use. As mentioned above, 12 mg already carries a stong body load, and few find doses higher than 15 mg worthwhile. Someone already died from a high dose of 5meoDIPT, and this chem is VERY similar in dose and bodyload.
    That said, it seems unusual that a more expensive chem by weight would be mixed in with methylone deliberately, though it could be a mistake. Also, the chemical analysis could be wrong, or the victim could be lying and have combined the two either erroneously or deliberately.
    This needs to be investigated ...
