MEM (psychedelic)

2,5-Dimethoxy-4-ethoxyamphetamine (MEM) is a psychedelic drug of the phenethylamine and amphetamine chemical classes. It was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin.[1] In his book PiHKAL, he lists the active dose range as 20–50 mg, and the duration as 10–14 hours.[1] According to Shulgin, MEM produces color enhancement, visual phenomena, and pattern movement, among other effects.[1]

MEM possesses affinity (Ki) for the 5-HT2A (3,948 nM), 5-HT2B (64.5 nM), 5-HT7 (7,156 nM), and σ1 (5,077 nM) receptors. It behaves as a partial agonist at the 5-HT2A receptor.[2] MEM is relatively selective for these sites and displays low/negligible (> 10,000 nM) affinity for a wide array of other targets.[2]
