Desired Effects:Hallucinogenic similar to LSD, mental & physical stimulation, euphoria and visual & auditory hallucinations, changes to consciousness and distortions to senses.
Side Effects:Increased heart rate, high blood pressure, agitation, unpleasant hallucinations, confusion, nausea, insomnia, paranoia and panic. Some users have reported highly negative effects while intoxicated and more risk of harm following use compared to other hallucinogens such as LSD etc.
Long term risks:Not yet known, but potentially similar to long term risks of LSD. As a relatively new compound, little is known about the risks or interaction with other drugs.
Short term risks:Aggression, seizures, significant risk of overdose - these compounds are extremely potent and only a very small amount is needed to have an effect, therefore there is a very high risk of overdose in powder and liquid form. There have been a number of deaths reported as a result of overdose and also from accidents while under the influence.
Parents & other relatives
Drug agencies also provide lots of advice and support to parents of people using these drugs. Many street agencies can provide relative support groups or counselling for family members, partners etc...
