5-MeO-MiPT is a psychedelic and hallucinogenic drug, used by some as an entheogen. It has structural and pharmacodynamic properties similar to the drugs 5-MeO-DiPT, DiPT, and MiPT. It is commonly used as a "substitute" for 5-MeO-DiPT because of the very similar structure and effects.
5-MeO-MiPT is in a class of compounds commonly known as tryptamines, and is the N-methyl-N-isopropyl homologue of the psychedelic, 5-MeO-DMT. The full name of the chemical is 5-methoxy-N-methyl-N-isopropyltryptamine.
5-MeO-MiPT causes the ehrlich reagent to turn purple then fade to faint blue. It causes the marquis reagent to go yellow through to black.
This is an analogue of the more popular drug 5-MeO-DiPT (nicknamed "foxy methoxy") and has the nickname "moxy". Some users report the tactile effects of 5-MeO-DiPT without some of the unwanted side effects. At higher doses it becomes much more psychedelic sometimes being compared to 5-MeO-DMT. But at doses of 4-10 milligrams users find 5-MeO-MiPT to be a very euphoric and tactile chemical. Its energetic effects can be very strong at high doses, increasing normal heart rate considerably. Sounds can be amplified in perception to a point where synesthetic effects ("touching or/and tasting sounds") occur.

Based on many anecdotal reports, dosages can be classified as follows:
|Threshold||5 mg||3 mg|
|Light||5 - 10 mg||3 - 7 mg|
|Common||10 - 15 mg||7 - 15 mg|
|Strong||15 - 20 mg||15 - 20 mg|
|Heavy||20 mg +||20 mg +|
The mechanism that produces the hallucinogenic and entheogenic effects of 5-MeO-MiPT is thought to result primarily from 5-HT2A receptor agonism, although additional mechanisms of action such as inhibition of MAO may be involved also. While 5-MeO-MiPT binds most strongly to 5-HT1A receptors, it also shows fairly strong binding affinity to the SERT and NET, thereby acting as a moderately potent serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. These mechanisms may help explain why there are many anecdotal reports of anti-depressant and anxiolytic effects from modest doses of this compound. For example, SNRIs such as venlafaxine are commonly prescribed to treat depression, and the 5-HT1A agonist buspirone is prescribed primarily for treatment of anxiety.

5-MeO-MiPT is not scheduled in Canada.
As of October 2015 5-MeO-MiPT is a controlled substance in China.
In Luxembourg, 5-MeO-MiPT is not cited in the list of prohibited substances. Therefore, it is still a legal substance.
5-MeO-MiPT is a Class A drug in the United Kingdom as are most ethers of ring-hydroxy tryptamines.
5-MeO-MiPT is unscheduled at the federal level in the United States, but it could be considered an analog of 5-MeO-DiPT, in which case purchase, sale, or possession with intent to consume could be prosecuted under the Federal Analog Act.
