How do “Bath Salts” work?
MDVP is structurally related to methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and cathinone derivatives. Animals studies have demonstrated elevated levels of extracellular dopamine 60 minutes after admininstration of MDVP
Before the DEA ruling, “bath salts” were noted to be easily accessible in convenience stores, gas stations, over the Internet and in “head” or smoke shops. “Bath salts”, packaged in powder form in small plastic or foil packages of 200 to 500 milligrams, sold for roughly $20 per package. Most packages were labeled “not for human consumption”. The “bath salt” powder appeared white, off-white or slightly yellow-colored.4 “Bath salts” are noted for producing a “high” similar to methamphetamine and have been called “legal cocaine”. “Bath salt” users usually snort the drug intranasally, but it can also been injected, smoked, orally ingested or used rectally. Effects may occur with doses as low as 3 to 5 milligrams, but average doses range from 5 to 20 milligrams. There is a great risk for overdose because retail packages may contain up to 500 milligrams. If ingested orally, absorption is rapid with a peak “rush” at 1.5 hours, the effect lasting 3 to 4 hours, then a hard “crash”. The total “bath salts” experience may last upwards of 8 hours Reports from emergency departments note that “bath salt” use can lead to sympathetic nervous system effects such as tachycardia (fast heart rate), hypertension (high blood pressure), hyperthermia (elevated body temperature), seizures (convulsions). Death has been reported.4 Altered mental status may present as severe panic attacks, agitation, paranoia, delusions, hallucinations, and violent behavior (including self-mutilation, suicide attempts and homicidal activity.)
