MEPHEDRONE: CHEMS SUPPORT

AKA: Meph and M-CAT

Many people who use chems and chemsex frequently use mehphedrone. Although Mephedrone is now illegal, it developed popularity in 2009 along with other so-called “Legal Highs”. It is a stimulant that causes speediness and euphoric effects. Psychological dependence is common with Mephedrone. If you’re worried this applies to you come and see us.

Mephedrone is most often a powder and can be snorted, mixed with a drink, bombed (wrapped in paper or put in a capsule and swallowed), booty-bumped (syringed up the anus) or injected.

Meph is very irritant and commonly causes inflammation. Snorting the drugs can cause nose bleeds. Swallowing it mixed with a drink can cause a sore throat. It is particularly damaging to your veins. The best harm reduction advice (besides not doing it at all) would be to bomb it in a paper wrap or capsule, to avoid the aggravation to nostrils, veins and throat.

Side effects include heart palpitations, anxiety, sleeplessness, temperature fluctuations and in some cases hallucinations and fainting. Get more help and advice with Chems here.
