Notes on My Favorite Drug
Citation:   Rocket. "Notes on My Favorite Drug: An Experience with Methylone (exp87730)". Erowid.org. Jul 31, 2015. erowid.org/exp/87730

330 mg oral Methylone (liquid)
I'd like to share misc observations and thoughts I have on Methylone. Methylone is unscheduled in the US (as of 2010) and is known as M1, Explosion or Ease, generally sold as a legal alternative to Ecstasy.

I dissolve 3 grams of Methylone in 1 liter of distilled water. This means every ml of water contains 3mg of Methylone. I consider one dose (with no tolerance) to be a little less than half a cup (about 110ml or 330mg of Methylone.)

There is something I can't find much research on and was my main intention for posting this. When I mix the solution above, it is clear. I place it in my freezer for storage (or fridge) but I noticed after a few days, the solution turns brownish. It has a yellowish/brownish tint much like the color of Methylone you see in pictures online. I thought maybe the cold water was unable to dissolve a lot of the substance so I tried warming up the solution, but the color remained. It is STUPID to try this substance at this point, not knowing what it has become, but I tried 1/2 a cup (heh) and it was just as potent as when the solution was clear. The taste was not affected.

Methylone always kicks in within 20 minutes (usually less) and comes on with a very pleasant euphoria which I interpret as simply having all my anxiety and most of my mental barriers crumbling down. It feels like being tipsy, but much cleaner and the euphoria more genuine. The drug makes me feel like the person I am in my head.

My cognitive abilities improve drastically, my judgment is not impaired in a significant way (though I may become somewhat manic if I take too much) and for the first time in my life, I feel 'sober.' As if my entire life I've been plagued by anxiety and depression, and for the first time, I have found something that works for these illnesses, and it's the most beautiful feeling in the world.

I become an 'mPUA' (master pick up artist) and I pick up girls and make friends easily, almost naturally. I become an alpha male but not cocky. I feel a great need to socialize and be with my species. My brothers and sisters. I also feel the drug significantly heightens my intelligence and wit, but this is mainly due to the elimination of anxiety and stress. I can't stress enough how witty, funny and lively I become. I talk differently, with a deeper more confident voice, and my face feels like it can display a thousand expressions that mirror how I feel inside, rather than a dull persistent anxious/confused face much like the character Gaius Balter on Battlestar Galactica.

It's important to note that the above paragraph describes how I am naturally, but the parts of me above are generally suppressed by debilitating anxiety and stress. I'm the same way as I describe above even without the drug, but Methylone makes the above feel 'natural' and the best way I can describe it is 'like Adam must have felt.' The drug doesn't make you somebody you're not. I know this because my friends have tried it as well.

Shulgin says Methylone is more of an anti-depressant without the E magic, and I'd like to point out that Methylone feels a little like when I was taking 100mg of Zoloft/day but without the terrible side effects of the SSRIs.

I've never mixed SSRIs with Methylone but I have tried it on Wellbutrin. It works just as effectively but seems to last much longer (though the insomnia lasts longer too.) At the time I was taking Wellbutrin XL 150mg/day but only about 4 days into this treatment when I tried Methylone. The combo may increase risk of seizures (which I'm not prone to.)

I do have side effects. 1-2 days after I take it, I feel dysphoric and somewhat anxious. I also have insomnia for a day after the effects wear off. I can fall asleep if I try, but the sleep feels shallow. I have muscle spasms in random parts of my body, notably my upper lip. It's not noticeable to others, and it may be due to fatigue/stress caused by the insomnia rather than by the Methylone directly, though in all my experiences with the drug, my muscles do feel tired and sore, almost like I jogged a few miles.

Methylone gives me the type of feeling that, in the future, I would consider have something implanted into my brain to achieve on a daily basis. It gives a feeling that pharmaceutical companies and doctors strive to make a drug produce safely for patients with anxiety and depression.

It's a 'it's not fair I can't feel like this naturally' feeling.
