para-Methoxymethcathinone (4-Methoxymethcathinone, bk-PMMA, PMMC, methedrone) is a stimulant and entactogen drug of the phenethylamine, amphetamine, and cathinone chemical classes.[1] It is closely related to para-methoxymethamphetamine (PMMA), and likely has a similar pharmacological profile. It is legal in most countries around the world, however classed as narcotics in Sweden, and as a result of this it can be purchased online leading to growing use of the drug.

Effects

Subjective effects have been reported similar to both MDMA and amphetamines, producing responses such as increased sociability, euphoria, disinhibition, energy and stimulation. Physiological responses include pupil dilation, hyperthermia and increased perspiration.

Health risks

As 4-methoxymethcathinone is a relatively new drug with little exposure experienced by humans, there are many concerns for possible ill health effects that are currently unknown. It should be noted that some amphetamine analogues containing paramethoxy group are known to cause severe hyperthermia and even death due to concurrent MAOI and monoamine releasing action.[2]

Methoxyphedrine (Methedrone, bk-PMMA) is a stimulant drug.

Effects

Users report feeling euphoria, increased energy, confusion, and chest pain after taking a dose of Methoxyphedrine.[1] The dosage range is similar to that of MDMA.

Toxicity

bk-PMMA is related to other phenethylamine derivates such as Methcathinone, PMMA and Mephedrone. There have not been any clinical tests on this substance yet, but it seems the profile of this drug may mimic closely chemically related substances such as Paramethoxymethamphetamine and 4-Methylmethcathinone, and since both of these drugs have caused deaths in overdose, bk-PMMA is likely to present similar hazards if used to excess.
