What is MDPV?

6-MeO-MDPV (Methylenedioxypyrovalerone) is a stimulant drug of the cathinone class which acts as a norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI). It was first developed in the 1960s by a team at Boehringer Ingelheim.
It remained an obscure stimulant drug until around 2004 when it was reportedly sold as a designer drug. Until banned in 2011, products containing MDPV and labeled as bath salts were sold as recreational drugs in gas stations and convenience stores in the United States, similar to the marketing for Spice and K2 as incense.

Formal name is  1-(1,3-Benzodioxol-5-yl)-2-(pyrrolidin-1-yl)pentan-1-one. The chemical formula for MDPV is C16H21NO3 with a molecular weight of 275.343

Effect and Dosage

MDPV acts as a stimulant drug and has been reported to produce effects similar to those of cocaine, methylphenidate, and amphetamines.
The primary psychological effects have a duration of roughly 3 to 4 hours, with aftereffects such as tachycardia, hypertension, and mild stimulation lasting from 6 to 8 hours.
Also, there are anecdotal reports of psychosis from sleep withdrawal and addiction at higher doses or more frequent dosing intervals. It has also been repeatedly noted to induce irresistible cravings to re-administer.
