Methylhexanamine

Methylhexanamine (sometimes spelled 'methylhexaneamine') is an aliphatic alkaloid with sympathomimetic and stimulant properties. It is also known as 1,3-dimethylamylamine (often abbreviated DMAA). Geranamine and Forthane are brand names. Methylhexanamine is a naturally occuring substance in Pelargonium graveolens, a flowering plant in the Geraniaceae (Geranium) family.

Using Methylhexanamine

Ways of administration

Methylhexanamine may be used orally or insufflated. Smoking methylhexanamine salt has been reported to be ineffective.[1] Insufflation of methylhexanamine powder is painful. Dissolving the salt in water and insufflating with an atomizer has been reported to be pain-free.[2] Suggested oral dose is 10-30 mg. Higher doses are associated with rapidly escalating side-effects.

Effects of Methylhexanamine

  • Euphoria is often reported. This may be more pronounced after taking methylhexanamine by insufflation,[3][4] but is also reported after oral use.[5][6][7] A few report no euphoria at all.[1][8] If euphoria is experienced, it seems to vanish after the first few uses of the drug.
  • Some reports state that methylhexanamine produces increased focus and productivity,[9][10] while others report the opposite, and complain that the drug scatters the user's attention.[1]
  • Methylhexamine has been reported to elevate blood pressure, but not heart rate.[9]
  • Methylhexamine has been reported to suppress appetite][10] and not to suppress appetite.[11]

Effects of methylhexanamine last 3-4 hours.

Nausea is often reported as a side-effect, even at moderate doses. Overdose can cause headache. After-effects are reported to include headache and depression,[12] and drowsiness.[6]

Combinations with Methylhexanamine

Combinations in Commercial Products

Methylhexanamine is a common ingredient in mixtures of non-prescription stimulants marketed to bodybuilders, and in stimulants marketed as legal highs or 'herbal ecstasy'. References to 'geranium', 'geranium oil' or 'Pelargonium graveolens' in the listed ingredients of legal highs are believed to mean methylhexanamine, although few of these products have been formally analzyed.

Note the many similar names. Products from the same manufacturer with identical ingredient lists may be maketed under different names in different countries. Products with the same name from the same manufacturer marketed in different countries may contain different ingredients. These products may also contain other, undisclosed, ingredients. Manufacturers may change ingredients at any time. This is a list for informational purposes only. It does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation of any of these products. There are experience reports about many of them on Drugs-Forum, generally in the Herbal Ecstasy forum.

[h="1"]Pharmacology of Methylhexanamine[/h]
Methylhexanamine is known to have sympathomimentic properties. It is believed to increase levels of norepinephrine in the synaptic cleft. However, there are no publicly available data on its specific mechanism of action, absorption, pharmacokinetics, metabolism, or excretion.

[h="1"]The dangers of Methylhexanamine[/h]
Methylhexanamine's [autolink]LD50[/autolink] in the mouse is 39 mg/kg intravenously and 185 mg/kg intraperitoneally. Oral [autolink]LD50[/autolink] is unknown.

Side-effects present at moderate doses can become overwhelming at higher doses.

Hemorrhagic stroke (rupture of a cerebral blood vessel, causing bleeding into, or around, the brain) is usually related to [autolink]hypertension[/autolink]. Sympathomimetic [autolink]stimulants[/autolink] such as methylhexanamine often cause [autolink]hypertension[/autolink] during their duration of activity.

[h="1"]Legal status of Methylhexanamine[/h]
[h=2]United Nations[/h]
Methylhexanamine is not scheduled in the 1971 United Nations Convention on [autolink]Psychotropic[/autolink] Substances.

[h=2]USA[/h]
Methylhexanamine (DMAA) is not an FDA approved [autolink]drug[/autolink] product. It is not legal to market methylhexanamine in the US as a [autolink]drug[/autolink]. Methyhexanamine was claimed by manufacturers to be a component of geranium oil, which is an approved food product, however this has been called into question by the FDA-- [autolink]studies[/autolink] have shown that the levels of DMAA in the products is not compatible with extraction from geraniums. It is no longer legal to sell DMAA as a dietary supplement.

In May 2012 the FDA imposed a ban on DMAA[FOOTNOTE]https://drugs-forum.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1164518&postcount=2[/FOOTNOTE]. This would cease the sale of products containing DMAA, as well as DMAA powder in shops across the country; this would ban all sales of DMAA for human comsumption.

DMAA is not scheduled by the DEA, so possession and purchase/sale is not illegal so long as it is not intended for human consumption. Its chemical structure and pharmacologic effects do not closely resemble any Schedule I or II substances, and it is not likely to fall under the Controlled Substance Analog Enforcement Act of 1986. [21 U.S.C. 802(32), 21 U.S.C. § 813]

[h=2]EU[/h]
Methylhexanamine is not licensed by the European Medicines Agency.

Retrieved from: [URL]http://eldd.emcdda.europa.eu/html.cfm/index5029EN.html[/URL][/footnote]

While it is currently unscheduled, the EU is currently targeting DMAA, removing it from store shelves. To be a "Dietary Supplement" it needs EU Novel Foods approval, and to be a [autolink]drug[/autolink], it needs Traditional Herbal Medicinal Product Directive (THMPD) approval and DMAA has neither. Since it is being target, it is on the very dangerous end of the 'grey' area.
