What is Foxy Methoxy?

  • Description of Foxy Methoxy?

    Foxy Methoxy is a member of the tryptamine class of drugs, and produces psychedelic, hallucinogenic and entheogenic effects, similar to the effects of psilocin and psilocybin found in “magic” mushrooms. In recent years, foxy methoxy has been gaining popularity as a club drug. To achieve its mind-altering effects, foxy methoxy artificially activates nerve cell regions in the brain, and possibly boosting the production of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.

What is the Origin of Foxy Methoxy?

Though many hallucinogens used recreationally were originally intended for medical use, foxy methoxy exists only as a drug for recreational use. It is a relatively new drug, originating in the late 1990s, when it was commonly distributed via the Internet as a legal substitute for Ecstasy, which has been illegal in the U.S. since the 80s. In 2004, the DEA added foxy methoxy to the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) as a Schedule I drug, making the use, possession or sale of the drug illegal.

Foxy Methoxy is most commonly distributed in the form of a capsule or tablet, although the drug is also available as a liquid or loose powder. The minimal effective dose of the drug is roughly 4 milligrams, the DEA’s Office of Diversion Control reports, with most active doses ranging in size from 6 to 20 mg. The first effects of Foxy Methoxy appear after roughly 20 minutes to half an hour; the most intense effects appear in roughly an hour and a half, and last somewhere within a range of three to six hours.

Foxy Methoxy is a Schedule I Drug.

How is Foxy Methoxy Used?

Foxy methoxy is taken orally, and is usually sold as capsules or tablets (typically red or purple, marked with a spider or alien head). It is also sometimes available in liquid or powder form, and some users have been known to snort or smoke the latter. A 4 milligram dose is required to achieve minimal effects, though most users ingest between 6 and 20 milligrams.

How Long Does Foxy Methoxy Stay in Your System?

As with most drugs of this type, the length of foxy methoxy’s effects will depend on the dose: larger doses will produce more significant and longer lasting effects. Effects can be felt within 20 to 30 minutes of taking the drug, and the most intense effects coming at approximately 90 minutes. In general, the effects will last three to six hours.

How to diagnose if you are Addicted to Foxy Methoxy?

  • Agitation
  • Gastrointestinal Distress

How is Foxy Methoxy Addiction Treated?

An overdose of Foxy Methoxy can lead to a range of symptoms that includes nausea, vomiting, hypotension (low blood pressure), tachycardia (accelerated heartbeat), heightened mental agitation, and extremely unpleasant hallucinations. Medical personnel should treat these effects symptomatically. In some rare cases, an overdose of the drug has led to rhabdomyolysis, which is a condition in which muscle tissue breaks down triggering a chain reaction in the body that leads to kidney failure and potentially death. Doctors have successful reversed overdoses of Foxy Methoxy with administration of the anti-anxiety medication lorazepam (Ativan).

What is the Extent of Foxy Methoxy Use?

According to DEA’s National Forensic Laboratory Information System (NFLIS) Foxy is one of the 25 illegal substances found the most often by state and local drug agencies, and one of the 10 illegal substances found by DEA agents. These numbers indicate an extraordinary increase in Foxy Methoxy use – an increase of 5600 percent in reported cases between 2009 and 2011. The reasons for this sharp increase in drug use are unknown.
