2-Fluoroethamphetamine (2-FEA) is a novel stimulant substance of the amphetamine class that produces classical stimulant effects such as stimulation, enhanced focus and euphoria when administered.

The exact effects of 2-FEA are not well known by its users with anecdotal reports suggesting only minimal activity and possible serotonergic qualities.

2-FEA is sold on the online research chemical market. It is strongly advised to use harm reduction practices if using this substance.

Chemistry

2-Fluoroethamphetamine (2-FEA) is a synthetic molecule of the substituted amphetamine class. Molecules of the amphetamine class contain a phenethylamine core featuring a phenyl ring bound to an amino (NH2) group through an ethyl chain with an additional methyl substitution at Rα (i.e., amphetamines are alpha-methylated phenethylamines). 2-FEA contains an ethyl group bound to the terminal amine RN of the amphetamine core.

2-FEA is the N-ethylated homolog of 2-FA (2-fluoroamphetamine).

Subjective effects

The effects of 2-FEA appear to be very subtle and difficult to characterize. Some reports suggest it is relatively mild and free of side effects in a similar fashion to 2-FA, while others note an increase in physical side effects or serotonergic activity reminiscent of 3-FEA.

Disclaimer: The effects listed below cite the Subjective Effect Index (SEI), a literature which relies on collected anecdotal reports and the personal experiences of PsychonautWiki contributors. As a result, they should be taken with a healthy amount of skepticism. It is worth noting that these effects will not necessarily occur in a consistent or reliable manner, although higher doses (common+) are more likely to induce the full spectrum of reported effects. Likewise, adverse effects become much more likely with higher doses and may include serious injury or death.

Experience reports

There are currently no anecdotal reports which describe the effects of this compound within our experience index. Additional experience reports can be found here:

Toxicity and harm potential

The toxicity and long-term health effects of recreational 2-FEA use do not seem to have been studied in any scientific context and the exact toxic dosage is unknown. This is because 2-FEA has a very limited history of human usage.

Anecdotal reports from those who have tried 2-FEA suggest that there do not seem to be any negative health effects attributed to simply trying this substance at low to moderate doses by itself or using it sparingly (but nothing can be completely guaranteed).

It is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices when using this substance.

Tolerance and addiction potential

As with other stimulants, the chronic use of 2-FEA can be considered moderately addictive with a high potential for abuse and is capable of causing psychological dependence among certain users. When addiction has developed, cravings and withdrawal effects may occur if a person suddenly stops their usage.

Tolerance to many of the effects of 2-FEA develops with prolonged and repeated use. This results in users having to administer increasingly large doses to achieve the same effects. After that, it takes about 3 - 7 days for the tolerance to be reduced to half and 1 - 2 weeks to be back at baseline (in the absence of further consumption). 2-FEA presents cross-tolerance with all dopaminergic stimulants, meaning that after the consumption of 2-FEA all stimulants will have a reduced effect.

Dangerous interactions

Although many psychoactive substances are reasonably safe to use on their own, they can quickly become dangerous or even life-threatening when combined with other substances. The list below includes some known dangerous combinations (although it cannot be guaranteed to include all of them). Independent research (e.g. Google, DuckDuckGo) should always be conducted to ensure that a combination of two or more substances is safe to consume. Some interactions listed have been sourced from TripSit.

  • Stimulants - 2-FEA can be potentially dangerous in combination with other stimulants as it can increase one's heart rate and blood pressure to dangerous levels.
  • 25x-NBOMe & 25x-NBOH - Members of the 25x family are highly stimulating and physically straining. Combinations with stimulants should be avoided due to the risk of excessive stimulation. This can result in panic attacks, thought loops, seizures, increased blood pressure, vasoconstriction, and heart failure in extreme cases.
  • Alcohol - Alcohol can be dangerous to combine with stimulants due to the risk of accidental over-intoxication. Stimulants mask the sedative effects of alcohol, which is the main factor people use to assess their degree of intoxication. Once the stimulant wears off, the depressant effects of alcohol are left unopposed, which can result in blackouts and respiratory depression. If combined, one should strictly limit themselves to only drinking a certain amount of alcohol per hour.
  • DXM - Combinations with DXM should be handled with extreme care due to DXM's effects on serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake. This can lead to panic attacks, hypertensive crisis, or serotonin syndrome with stimulants that increase levels of serotonin (MDMA, methylone, mephedrone, etc.). Monitor blood pressure carefully and avoid strenuous physical activity.
  • MDMA - The neurotoxic effects of MDMA may be increased when combined with other stimulants. There is also a risk of excessive heart strain.
  • MXE - Combinations with MXE may dangerously elevate blood pressure and increase the risk of psychosis.
  • Stimulants - 2-FEA can be potentially dangerous in combination with other stimulants as they can increase one's heart rate and blood pressure to dangerous levels.
  • Cocaine - This combination may increase strain on the heart.
  • Tramadol - Tramadol lowers the seizure threshold.[1] Combinations with stimulants may further increase this risk.
  • MDMA - The neurotoxic effects of MDMA may be increased when combined with amphetamines.
  • MAOIs - This combination may increase the amount of neurotransmitters such as dopamine to dangerous or even fatal levels. Examples include syrian rue, banisteriopsis caapi, 2C-T-2, 2C-T-7, αMT, and some antidepressants.[2]
  • Cocaine - This combination may increase strain on the heart.

Legal status

This legality section is a stub.

As such, it may contain incomplete or wrong information. You can help by expanding it.

2-FEA is currently a gray area compound within all parts of the world, meaning its regulation lies in a legal gray area and that it is not known to be specifically illegal ("scheduled") within any country. However, people may still be charged for its possession under certain circumstances such as under analogue laws and with the intent to sell or consume.

  • Canada: 2-FEA would be considered Schedule I as it is an analogue of Amphetamine.[3]
  • Germany: 2-FEA is controlled under the NpSG (New Psychoactive Substances Act)[4] as of November 26, 2016.[5] Production and import with the aim to place it on the market, administration to another person and trading is punishable. Possession is illegal but not penalized.[6]
  • New Zealand: 2-FEA is an amphetamine analogue, so is a Schedule 3 controlled substance in New Zealand.[7]
  • Switzerland: 2-FEA can be considered a controlled substance as a defined derivative of a-methylphenethylamine under Verzeichnis E point 130. It is legal when used for scientific or industrial use.[8]
  • United Kingdom: 2-FEA is considered a Class A drug as a result of the amphetamine analogue clause of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.[9]
