5-MeO-DiPT crystals – More information
5-Methoxy-N,N-diisopropyltryptamine (also known as 5-MeO-DiPT, Foxy, and Foxy Methoxy) is a novel psychedelic substance of the tryptamine class that produces psychedelic effects when administered. It is related in structure to DiPT and 5-MeO-MiPT.
The first human trials of 5-MeO-DiPT were undertaken by Alexander Shulgin in 1975. who would co-author and publish a paper detailing its synthesis and human psychopharmacology in 1981. A summary of the synthesis and reports of human use is included in Shulgin’s 1997 book TiHKAL (“Tryptamines I Have Known And Loved”).
Anecdotal reports characterize the effects of this compound as highly stimulating and mildly entactogenic, lacking in typical psychedelic visual distortions. Many users report strong physical and tactile effects that serve to enhance libido and sexual pleasure. Many users note an unpleasant body load accompanies higher dosages. Some users also report sound distortion, which is also noted with the related compound, DiPT.
Very little is known about the pharmacological properties, metabolism and toxicity of 5-MeO-DiPT. It is relatively obscure and has a limited history of human use. It has been sold online as a research chemical. It is highly advised to use harm reduction practices if using this substance.

5-MeO-DiPT, or 5-methoxy-N,N-diisopropyltryptamine, is a synthetic indole alkaloid molecule of the tryptamine class. Tryptamines share a core structure comprised of a bicylic indole heterocycle attached at R3 to an amino group via an ethyl side chain. 5-MeO-DiPT is substituted at R5 of its indole heterocycle with a methoxy (MeO) functional group CH3O−; it also contains two isopropyl chains bound to the terminal amine RN of its tryptamine backbone (DiPT).
5-MeO-DiPT is the N-substituted diisopropyl homolog of 5-MeO-MiPT.
The long-term health effects of recreational 5-MeO-DiPT use do not seem to have been studied in any scientific context and the exact toxic dose is unknown. This is because 5-MeO-DiPT is a research chemical with very little history of human usage. The neurotoxic effects has been studies in rats.
Anecdotal reports suggest that there are no negative health effects attributed to simply trying it by itself at low to moderate doses or using it very sparingly (but nothing can be completely guaranteed). Independent research should always be done to ensure that a combination of two or more substances is safe before consumption.
It is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices when using this substance.
Excessive doses have caused nausea, vomiting, agitation, decreased blood pressure, pupil dilation, increased heart rate, and hallucinations in a number of young adults. Rhabdomyolysis and renal failure occurred in one young man and another one died 3–4 hours after an apparent rectal overdose. A 24-year-old man also died of this compound being administered into the colon.
Like other serotonergic psychedelics, 5-MeO-DiPT is not habit-forming.
Tolerance to the effects of 5-MeO-DiPT builds almost immediately after ingestion. After that, it takes about 3 days for the tolerance to be reduced to half and 7 days to be back at baseline (in the absence of further consumption). 5-MeO-DiPT presents cross-tolerance with all psychedelics, meaning that after the consumption of 5-MeO-DiPT all psychedelics will have a reduced effect.
