Desoxypipradrol (2-DPMP) is long-lived, potent stimulant which was released in the wake of the UK cathinone ban as a possible substitute for the banned substances. It quickly grew a fearsome reputation as an incredibly long lived stimulant with little to no euphoria and not much recreational potential at all. It also emerged as the ingredient in “Ivory Wave” which caused a number of psychotic hospitalisations, presumably as a result of people chasing the euphoria.
Unsurprisingly it quickly fell to the sidelines, although it was not forgotten, with the UK government banning import in December 2011. It was finally scheduled as a class B drug in May 2012.
The effects are very subtle at any dose worth trying, and useful but horribly drawn out at doses above this. In my opinion it has no recreational value. Interestingly for a DRI I did not notice a comedown.
Dose: 4mg orally
Duration: 16-72 hours
Description: A potent functional stimulant with a gruelling duration and long come-up.
Due to the low dose I made up a volumetric solution into 5 mg blotters and ate one. I experienced nothing the entire day and slept fine.
The next day I figured that I would still have some of yesterday’s dose and if I had the same again they would stack to a threshold dose. I dosed early again and felt nothing until about 10pm. I noticed I had some jaw tension which built over the following hours. I was not tired and did not bother trying to sleep for 2 hours past my normal time. I tried in vain until about 4am, when I dosed enough GBL to knock myself out until 8am. That day my focus was excellent, but my heart rate was up 20 BPM and I could feel it beating when I was sat quietly.
I was quite tired the next night, but still needed GBL to get any sleep. This portion was slightly fun, but that was no fault of the DPMP.
My heart rate was still high on this, the fourth day after dose 1, but my focus was normal. By the time night came I was able to sleep naturally and my BPM was normal again.
I tried 2-DPMP a few more times, but never once found it to be useful without also disrupting my sleep. Even when vaporised it cause problems. I do not think I would bother with it again. The come-up and duration are too long and it is too unpredictable.
