2-Me-PVP is a psychoactive drug and research chemical that belongs to the pyrrolidinophenone class. It is structurally related to alpha-PVP, a potent stimulant and cathinone derivative.

Chemistry[edit | edit source]

2-Me-PVP, also known as 2-Methyl-Pyrrolidinopentiophenone, is a synthetic cathinone. Synthetic cathinones are a new variety of amphetamine-like substances, often marketed as 'bath salts'. The chemical structure of 2-Me-PVP is characterized by a phenethylamine core with an alkyl group attached to the alpha carbon, and a ketone group attached to the beta carbon.

Pharmacology[edit | edit source]

The exact pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of 2-Me-PVP are not well-studied. However, it is believed to work similarly to other synthetic cathinones, acting as a potent norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI). This means it increases the levels of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain by inhibiting their reuptake into neurons.

Effects[edit | edit source]

The effects of 2-Me-PVP can vary greatly depending on the dose, individual physiology, and method of administration. Common effects reported by users include euphoria, increased energy, enhanced focus, and increased sociability. However, negative side effects can include anxiety, paranoia, insomnia, and potentially dangerous increases in heart rate and blood pressure.

Legal Status[edit | edit source]

The legal status of 2-Me-PVP varies by country. In many jurisdictions, it is classified as a controlled substance due to its potential for abuse and addiction.
