3,4-Ethylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine (EDMA) is an entactogen drug of the methamphetamine class.[1][2] It is an analogue of MDMA where the methylenedioxy ring has been replaced by an ethylenedioxy ring.[1][2] EDMA was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin.[1] In his book PiHKAL, the dosage is listed as 150–250 mg, and the duration listed as 3–5 hours.[1] According to Shulgin, EDMA produces a bare threshold consisting of paresthesia, nystagmus, and hypnogogic imagery, with few to no other effects.[1] Scientific research has demonstrated that EDMA acts as a non-neurotoxic serotonin releasing agent with moderately diminished potency relative to MDMA, and with negligible effects on dopamine release.[2]
