DOSE:
150 mg buccal 4-Fluoroamphetamine (powder / crystals)

BODY WEIGHT: 160 lb


User notes:

Male 19 years old
160-ish pounds
Relatively frequent user of amphetamine, occasional alcohol, caffeine, and cannabis, and infrequent MDMA.

Timeline:

+0:00 - Took 150 mg (+/- 5mg) buccal (dipped). Tasted absolutely terrible and gave me a slight chemical burn. A little strung up from the excitement but I am feeling relatively normal.

+0:20 - Feeling it a little bit already. Jitters and general good vibes.

+0:45 - Definitely feeling it. Music is extremely enhanced and I'm very talkative and sociable (not normal for me). Bruxism is kicking in, so I grabbed some gum.

+1:00 - Lots of spelling mistakes. Involuntarily turning up volume and having to stop myself as I do it. Loving music I normally don't have much of a taste for, very 'MDxx' in that respect. Definitely a good idea I got gum as my teeth would be dust at this point otherwise.

+1:30 - Quite euphoric at this point. General feeling of 'this is awesome' as well as a pleasant 'lift' from inside my head. Bruxism has mellowed a bit but is still present.

+1:45 - Watching a music festival recap video for a boost, open eye visuals surfaced a few times. Mostly a strobing/scrambling effect, a bit trippier than MDMA.

+2:00 - Into productive mode, it seems. Getting really into the work I had laid out for the night as well as the music I'm positively BLASTING into my ears.

+2:05 - That was quite short-lived. The music took over, and I started seeing more serious visuals. Much trippier than I was expecting, with random (really random) objects popping up in thin air for very brief periods of time.

+2:30 - Switched to much happier music and the mood lift was un. real. I started getting the seemingly signature MDMA 'good feeling.'

+3:00 - Back to productive pursuits. A bit less immersed in the experience, with very little in the way of visuals left. However, my spelling and handwriting are still horrendous and the dry mouth is kicking in. Hoping this isn't the end already. Tempted to redose but resisted it.

+3:30 - Definitely fading now. A little disappointed, but what can I say.

+3:45 - Suddenly jaw is very sore and sluggish, presumably from continuous, intense chewing for the past 3 hours. I am also tired and a bit irritable.

+4:00 - No MDMA-ish 'afterglow' registering for me. Just feeling extremely lazy and tired. Music is still nice but I'm not sure whether it's actually being enhanced or not.

General experience notes:

Little to no empathogenic effect felt.
Music is DEFINITELY enhanced. This was easily the most noticeable and pleasant effect of the drug.

'Trippy' but not overwhelming visuals present with music on and visual stimulation. Took some focus to get them into the forefront.

'Lift' effect highly dependent on environment.

Minimal tactile amplification. Rubbing skin felt good but nowhere near MDxx feelings.
Energy is definitely amphetamine in character, but highly variable with time.

This is in no way a study drug, as I had originally intended it. I will continue to experiment with dosage and environment to find the right application for me.
