“Paranoid psychosis induced by consumption of methylenedioxypyrovalerone: two cases”.
Gen Hosp Psychiatry. 2011 May 13.
Of growing concern has been the phenomenon of psychoactive chemicals legally marketed as a variety of products such as "bath salts" or "herbal incense." There is little in the formal literature about actual adverse effects of such chemicals. We have two cases of a paranoid psychosis in individuals consuming methylenedioxypyrovalerone. A discussion of this chemical and its abuse follows.
Key Words: MDPV, bath salts
