2-FMA is an Amphetamine Stimulant
2-FMA is a strong stimulant in the same family as Adderall, Vyvanse, and methamphetamine. 2-FMA causes stimulation, increased libido, increased focus, increased motivation, and appetite suppression. It can be snorted (insufflated) or taken in tablet/pill form.
First appearing in 2007, 2-FMA is still steadily gaining popularity on both the licit and illicit markets. The drug is known to be similar to 2-FA, which is also a popular recreational research chemical. Almost no academic or medical literature has engaged with the existence of this drug to determine its scientific characteristics.
The Effects of 2-FMA on the Body
The effects are anecdotally similar to Vyvanse without much euphoria (a common thread in subjective descriptions of the effects of Adderall, et al.). Many users on Reddit report that long term use negatively affects those who use 2-FMA in a variety of ways, however large scale studies have not been conducted to determine what, if any, are the most consistently occurring negative effects of the drug.
Most use pertains to being a productivity drug of sorts, much like those who abuse low doses of cocaine. There’s a possibility it’s cardiotoxic or neurotoxic. The drug almost definitely acts as a dopamine releasing agent, making the user feel good to some degree.
It remains a popular Adderall/Vyvanse replacement that’s legal only because it’s classified as a “research chemical.” The drug is controlled in only a handful of countries, including the UK and China. 2-FMA is a very risky substance to use and is therefore not recommended for any human use until it’s been properly evaluated by medical professionals in a clinical environment.
