DOET (2,5-dimethoxy-4-ethylamphetamine) is a new psychotropic agent which chemically resembles mescaline and amphetamine. It is essentially the ethyl homologue of DOM (2,5-dimethoxy-4-methylamphetamine), a psychotomimetic drug widely used by hippie populations and designated “STP.” DOET was administered to normal male subjects in doses ranging from 0.75 to 4 mg and contrasted with effects of a water placebo. In all cases DOET produced subjective effects including a mild euphoria, a feeling of enhanced self-awareness, and a tendency to feel “anxious” at higher doses. Although there was some increase in subjective effects at higher doses, this was not marked. No hallucinogenic or psychotomimetic effects were observed at any dose. Thus, over a five-fold range of pharmacologically active dosage, the “enhanced awareness” produced by DOET was not associated with psychotomimetic or hallucinogenic actions.
