I have previous experience with 4-aco-dmt, not regularly but enough to appreciate ~20mg doses. I can remain 'in my head' enough to prevent a trip from turning sour, I am comfortable tripping alone (actually prefer it), and I do everything I can beforehand to ensure a positive time.
I ordered what I thought was 4-aco-dmt from a reputable online vendor. Searched online beforehand, looked on Reddit, nothing to suggest what would happen. I weighed out 20mg of 4-aco once my package arrived, stirred into purified water, and drank it.
Or tried to.
Turns out, this was 20 mg of 5-meo-mipt. I didn't learn this until browsing online and finding the vendor admitting some sort of mix-up.
I immediately noticed the 5-meo-mipt was much more bitter. Dissolved 4-aco-dmt is almost tasteless to me; dissolved 5-meo-mipt made me puke before I even finished the solution. I felt slightly better, finished the solution, lay down.
I don't even remember the good parts. Hugged a pillow for awhile. Ate pretzels before realizing that I couldn't get to water, and might choke on them. It was similar enough during the come-up that I might confuse it for a low dose of 4-aco-dmt but otherwise, never again. Took about as long (45 minutes?) to come up as well.
I remember writing down my mother's phone number (while I could still write) because I felt like I was going to die. I lost all sense of time. I would look at my phone, see the time, and become convinced that it wasn't changing. I stayed grounded by repeating the date, the name of the person I had a date with that weekend, and the name of my debate group. Having 'anchors' like that is, IMO, what kept me from going full crazy.
I didn't hurt my back or bruise anything. Wasn't even sore the next day. But...I thought I was dead and that people were trying to revive me. That I was in a coma, that if I didn't move I would have permanent paralysis. That I was found outside and brought to my debate group's meetingplace. That paramedics were asking me questions trying to orient me, and I went mute. I couldn't talk.
At this point my sight is wobbly/fuzzy/blurry, and my heart rate is likely horrid. The only things that registered with me after I couldn't talk were 'rape' and 'death'.
I was raped repeatedly during an abusive relationship some years ago and this was never an issue during my times with 4-aco-dmt. I can say my rapist's name while on 4-aco-dmt, nothing happens but a goofy smile. I take notes during 4-aco-dmt trips and abuse doesn't show up during any of them.
That 20mg of 5-meo-mipt had me convinced I was dying of some spinal injury, that I should just let myself flatline so that I could finally be at peace. Before I went mute, while I still thought I was in a hospital, I kept saying my abuser's name. If I was going to die of a drug OD, parents at my side, then dammit someone's getting justice. I'm also Catholic and I remember asking for last rites several times, then panicking when I couldn't verbalize the request.
I stared at my bed during a moment of lucidity, thinking this was the longest night of my life. I refused to text or call anyone because, I think, some part of me realized it was temporary--and that calling 911 would mean permanent consequences. DON'T do dumb shit like that, let a close friend or three know what you took, etc etc.
Eventually got back into bed. The whole experience lasted--as a guess--around five hours, with the worst bit in the middle.
Would I do it again at a lower dose? Will I ever be trying tryptamines again? No and no. It's about two weeks out now with no signs of lingering paranoia/unrest/anything even close to that trip's insanity.
TL; DR: lab test your drugs before using, even if it's a substance you think you've used before, even if you have little reason to. Fifty bucks would have been worth it to test what I bought and not feel like impending death.
