5-MeO-MiPT crystal rocks – More information
5-Methoxy-N-methyl-N-isopropyltryptamine (also known as 5-MeO-MiPT and moxy) is a lesser-known psychedelic substance of the tryptamine class. 5-MeO-MiPT is chemically related to tryptamines like 5-MeO-DMT and 5-MeO-DiPT. It produces its psychoactive effects through activity at serotonin receptors in the brain.
The synthesis and pharmacology of 5-MeO-MiPT was first reported in 1985 by David Repke and Alexander Shulgin. Its effects in humans was documented in Shulgin’s book TiHKAL (“Tryptamines I Have Known and Loved”).
Anecdotal reports describe 5-MeO-MiPT’s effects 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. An unpleasant “body load” is also often reported at common to high doses, marked by muscle tension and nausea.
Very little is known about the pharmacological properties, metabolism and toxicity of 5-MeO-MiPT, and it 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 when using this substance.

5-MeO-MiPT, or 5-methoxy-N-methyl-N-isopropyltryptamine, 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-MiPT is substituted at R5 of its indole heterocycle with a methoxy (MeO) functional group CH3O−; it also contains a methyl group and an isopropyl chain bound to the terminal amine RN of its tryptamine backbone (MiPT).
5-MeO-MiPT is the N-substituted isopropyl homologue of 5-MeO-DMT.
The toxicity and long-term health effects of recreational 5-MeO-MiPT do not seem to have been studied in any scientific context and the exact toxic dose is unknown. This is because 5-MeO-MiPT is a research chemical with very little history of human usage.
Anecdotal evidence from people within the community who have tried 5-MeO-MiPT suggests that there are no negative health effects attributed to simply trying the drug by itself at low to moderate doses and 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 drug.
5-MeO-MiPT is not habit-forming and the desire to use it can actually decrease with use. It is most often self-regulating.
Tolerance to the effects of 5-MeO-MiPT are built 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-MiPT presents cross-tolerance with all psychedelics, meaning that after the consumption of 5-MeO-MiPT all psychedelics will have a reduced effect.
