|Summary sheet: Meclofenoxate|
Meclofenoxate (meclofenoxate) is a...
A portion of Meclofenoxate breaks down into DMAE and pCPA. DMAE is then converted to choline.
The effects listed below are based upon the subjective effects index and personal experiences of PsychonautWiki contributors. These 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 of inducing a full range of effects. Likewise, adverse effects become much more likely on higher doses and may include serious injury or death.
- Bodily control enhancement
- Body odor alteration - This can be caused in some populations, especially those suffering from trimethylaminuria. Choline (a metabolite of meclofenoxate) is a precursor to trimethylamine, which those with trimethylaminuria are not able to easily break down, oftening resulting in smelling similar to fish.
- Muscle tension
- Stamina enhancement
- Stimulation - The stimulation which meclofenoxate presents can be considered as primarily subtle and similar to that of caffeine.
- Teeth grinding
Toxicity and harm potential
Meclofenoxate is non-addictive, is not known to cause harm, and has an extremely low toxicity relative to dose. Similar to many other nootropic substances, there are relatively few physical side effects associated with acute choline exposure. Various studies have shown that in reasonable doses in a particular context, it presents no negative cognitive, psychiatric or toxic physical consequences of any sort.
Regardless, it is strongly recommended that one is familiar with and uses harm reduction practices when using this substance.
Tolerance and addiction potential
In vitro studies of meclofenoxate showed inhibition of total MAO, MAO A and MAO B in rat brains. Meclofenoxate and MAOIs are a potentially dangerous combination. It is likely that MAOIs could increase the effects of meclofenoxate unpredictably. Taking this chemical while on prescription MAOIs is strongly discouraged.
