2-Bromo-4,5-methylenedioxyamphetamine (also known as 2-Bromo-4,5-MDA) is a lesser-known psychedelic drug and a halogenated amphetamine derivative. It is structurally related to MDA, a well-known psychedelic substance.

Chemistry[edit | edit source]

2-Bromo-4,5-MDA is a brominated derivative of 4,5-methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA). The bromine atom at the 2-position of the phenyl ring differentiates it from its parent compound. The chemical formula of 2-Bromo-4,5-MDA is C10H12BrNO2.

Pharmacology[edit | edit source]

The pharmacological properties of 2-Bromo-4,5-MDA are not well-studied. However, due to its structural similarity to MDA, it is speculated to act as a serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine releasing agent (SNDRA). This means it may increase the levels of these neurotransmitters in the brain by promoting their release from neurons.

Effects[edit | edit source]

The effects of 2-Bromo-4,5-MDA in humans are largely unknown due to the lack of scientific research. However, based on its structural similarity to MDA, it may produce effects such as euphoria, empathy, visual hallucinations, and altered consciousness.

Legal Status[edit | edit source]

The legal status of 2-Bromo-4,5-MDA varies by country. In many jurisdictions, it is not explicitly controlled, but it may be considered an analog of MDA under certain analogue laws.

Safety[edit | edit source]

As with all psychedelic substances, the use of 2-Bromo-4,5-MDA carries risks. These may include psychological distress, adverse physical reactions, and potential for abuse. It is strongly recommended that individuals use harm reduction practices if choosing to use this substance.
