Another bitter pill: a case of toxicity from DMAA party pills.


"Party pills" continue to be legally sold though the main ingredient is no longer 1-benzylpiperazine. Dimethylamylamine (DMAA) is a synthetic stimulant and is one of the main ingredients of new "BZP-free party pills". Though patented in the 1950s as a nasal decongestant, little is known of its pharmacology via the ingested route. This case report describes a 21-year-old male who suffered a cerebral haemorrhage shortly after ingesting two capsules of DMAA.
