DMA, or dimethoxyamphetamine, is a series of lesser-known psychedelic drugs similar in structure to Amphetamine and to TMA (Trimethoxyamphetamine). They were first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin and written up in his book PIHKAL (Phenethylamines I Have Known and Loved).[1] Very little data is known about their dangers or toxicity.

3,4-DMA, or 3,4-dimethoxy-amphetamine

2,4-DMA

Dosage: 60 mgs or greater

Duration: short

Effects: stimulative, amphetamine-like effects

2,5-DMA

Dosage: 80-160 mgs

Duration: 6-8 hours

Effects: Mydriasis, increase in heart rate

3,4-DMA

Dosage: unknown

Duration: unknown

Effects: Mescaline-like hallucinations


Note that two other positional isomers of dimethoxyamphetamine, 2,6-DMA and 3,5-DMA, have also been made, but these drugs have not been tested in humans and their effects are unknown. However it is likely that these compounds would also produce amphetamine-like stimulation or possibly hallucinogenic effects.
