DESCRIPTION #
General Effects Notes
The effects of 3-MeO-PCP are usually compared to ketamine and other dissociatives like PCP, methoxetamine, etc.

3-MeO-PCP is reported as more physically stimulating than ketamine and other psychedelic dissociatives. Where ketamine causes people to be physically sedated and incapacitated at strong doses, 3-MeO-PCP's powerful effects on the mind can be accompanied by standing up, walking around, talking, and potentially doing dangerous activities.

Routes of Administration
3-MeO-PCP is taken via insufflation, sublingually, IM (intramuscular) and orally, and there are reports of rectal and IV (intravenous) use.

Addiction and Compulsive Use
Although 3-MeO-PCP can trigger a desire to redose and/or to take the drug again in the near future, users should be very careful about redosing too frequently. The lag between administration and effects can result in much stronger effects than desired or expected. Because of its short history of human use and lack of experimental research, no definitive statements can be made about the risk of addiction and/or compulsive use across a wide cross section of users.

EXPERIENCE EXCERPTS #
[6 mg oral] "I did fumble around a bit when walking, but in general I was able to function quite well and did not have any problem whatsoever walking and carrying conversation with others. My friends did not know I had ingested this compound, and I believe they did not suspect it." -- 102457
[20 mg oral] "20mg of this stuff alone, or 8 beers alone, produces in me a very controllable state with little to no amnesia. 20mg + 8 beers in retrospect should have seemed like a bad idea to me, but at the time felt like a good idea. i blacked out for a few hours." -- Bluelight
[35 mg IM] "Once I got some 3 meo and hadn't taken dissociatives for months. I did 35 mg IM and walked the dogs... rather the dogs walked me. How I didn't end up in hospital or jail and actually survived to make it home is a mystery." -- Bluelight
