5-Methoxy-N,N-diallyl-tryptamine (also known as 5-MeO-DALT or colloquially as Foxtrot) is a novel psychedelic substance of the tryptamine chemical class. It was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. It is chemically related to the compounds 5-MeO-DPT and DALT. It is described as having rapid, intense and short-acting psychedelic effects.

Alexander Shulgin sent the first material regarding the synthesis and effects of 5-MeO-DALT to a researcher in May 2004; afterwards, it soon circulated online. In June 2004, it became available through the use of online research chemical vendors. In August 2004, the synthesis and effects of 5-MeO-DALT were published by Erowid.[1]


5-MeO-DALT is named for its chemical structure 5-MethOxy-DiALlylTryptamine. It contains two allyl groups bound to the amino group and a 5-methoxy group bound to the indole ring of tryptamine. It is a structural analog of DALT and 5-MeO-DPT. At room temperature, 5-MeO-DALT is an off-white powder.


Further information: Serotonergic psychedelic

5-MeO-DALT acts as a 5-HT2A partial agonist. The psychedelic effects are believed to come from its efficacy at the 5-HT2A receptors. However, the role of these interactions and how they result in the psychedelic experience continues to remain elusive.

Subjective effects

The effects listed below are based upon the subjective effects index and personal experiences of PsychonautWiki contributors. The listed effects should be taken with a grain of salt and will rarely (if ever) occur all at once, but heavier doses will increase the chances and are more likely to induce a full range of effects. Likewise, adverse effects become much more likely on higher doses and may include injury or death.

Toxicity and harm potential


This toxicity and harm potential section is a stub.

As such, it may contain incomplete or even dangerously wrong information. You can help by expanding upon or correcting it.
We also recommend that you practice diligent independent research and the most thorough harm reduction practices when using this substance.

The toxicity and long-term health effects of recreational 5-MeO-DALT use do not seem to have been studied in any scientific context and the exact toxic dose is unknown. This is because 5-MeO-DALT is a research chemical with very little history of human usage. Anecdotal evidence from people within the psychonaut community who have tried 5-MeO-DALT suggests that there are no negative health effects attributed to simply trying the drug by itself at low to moderate doses and using it very sparingly (but nothing can be completely guaranteed). Independent research should always be done to ensure that a combination of two or more substances is safe before consumption. It is strongly recommended that one use harm reduction practices when using this drug.

Tolerance and addiction potential

5-MeO-DALT is not habit-forming and the desire to use it can actually decrease with use. It is most often self-regulating.

Tolerance to the effects of 5-MeO-DALT are built almost immediately after ingestion. After that, it takes about 3 days for the tolerance to be reduced to half and 7 days to be back at baseline (in the absence of further consumption). 5-MeO-DALT presents cross-tolerance with all psychedelics, meaning that after the consumption of 5-MeO-DALT all psychedelics will have a reduced effect.

Legal status

  • United Kingdom - 5-MeO-DALT is a Class A drug in the UK as it is an ether of the drug 5-HO-DALT[2], which is a Class A drug as a result of the tryptamine catch-all clause.[3]
  • Japan - 5-MeO-DALT became a controlled substance in Japan in April 2007 due to an amendment to the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law.[4]
  • Sweden - 5-MeO-DALT is a Schedule I substance in Sweden as of May 1, 2012. It was published by Medical Products Agency in their regulation LVFS 2012:6.[5]
  • United States - 5-MeO-DALT is unscheduled in the United States. It may be considered an analogue of 5-MeO-DiPT, a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substances Act. As such, the sale for human consumption or the use for illicit non-medical or industrial intents and purposes could be prosecuted as crimes under the Federal Analogue Act.[citation needed]
    • Florida - 5-MeO-DALT is a Schedule I controlled substance in the state of Florida, making it illegal to buy, sell, or possess.[6]
  • China - As of October 2015 5-MeO-DALT is a controlled substance in China.[7]
