Approx. 12.5mg of 5-MeO-DiPT was measured by dividing 100mg into 8 parts. Not the best way to measure, but even taking double the target dose would still be within a reasonable safety range. The gelcap was taken with a glass of water on an empty stomache.
First effects were noted within about a half hour. This was my second experience with this substance. The trip was not really anything special, and not worth going into detail.
After the 5 hour mark, I was definatly 'down,' and made the decision to go to a local keg party. I hate drinking, so I decided to smoke some pot. At the party, I started feeling very strange. I was well hydrated, and had eaten just 1 hour before. Suddenly, while standing and listening to music, my world began to fall apart. The room began spinning, and my consciousness began to slip away. Everything went black.
I awoke amidst a crowd of people, and a woman asked me if I was ok. I said 'I don't know', and managed to get outside for some fresh air. The remainder of the comedown was marked by a strange, almost sick feeling in the back of my head, almost like a headache, but steady and not throbbing. This was similar to the after effects of a previous Fox trip, but stronger.
Eventually, I got to sleep that night. I awoke, feeling extremely 'burned out'. Water tasted like old pennies, and food tasted like clay. When I smoked a cigarette, I coulden't feel the nicotine at all, and it brought me no satisfaction whatsoever. Sex was boring and more of a routine than an indulgence. There was also severe depression. The only thing that could have made me happy that day was for someone to put a bullet in my head. Luckily, I am a relativly strong minded person, and just took it easy, attributing my mental state to the strange drugs I had consumed the night before. I felt as if my personality, ego, and willpower had been flatlined.
This conditiond gradually relaxed over the next few days. I felt my emotions flowing back into me like much needed oxygen. The depression faded, and I regained the positive outlook on life that I usually have all the time. It is now day 3 after the trip, and I still don't feel 'right'. I'm fairly certain these effects will wear off, because the more time that passes the better I feel.
Overall, the trip itself was fine, similar to my first experience. The negative effects I experienced scared me a lot. I'm seriously considering never doing this drug again. No other people who took equivilant dosages of this drug experienced any negative symptoms other than the expected next-day burn out. I strongly question the safety of this substance.
