It is a dissociative hallucinogen. It is from the same family as PCP and ketamine. Those drugs have been around for many years and are often used as anesthesia in both animals and humans.

MXE is a more modern interpretation or a modern drug so to say. It was made for the grey market, which is for legal non-counterfeit off brand items. It is for recreational use only. It is legal and seems to have stronger effects than ketamine. It affects the dopamine emissions in the brain, which causes euphoria. This is what makes drugs addictive.

MXE is usually made in a white powdered form that can be taken as such drugs are. It can be sniffed or snorted through the nasal or placed under the tongue. It can also be injected into a muscle or the rectum to enter the bloodstream.

Designer Drug

MXE falls under the class of “designer drug” which are synthetic, or human-made, drugs formed in labs. This usually involves chemistry. It was derived from the original anesthesia into this more recreational use drug. It is illegal to buy, sell, or use in Florida, Utah, and Alabama.

This synthetic style drugs are growing more and more popular. People have a false sense of security that they aren’t as dangerous. They are still just as dangerous and can cause overdosing.

The drug effects usually start right away and last a few hours. Using it often can cause it to build tolerance in your system. Drug tolerance is when your body gets used to a substance so that you need more of it to feel its effects.

MXE is said to be a drug that brings great pleasure. But MXE can also be unpredictable in its side effects. They can be very unpleasant. This is especially true when higher doses have been taken. It can be called the ‘’m-hole”. Recovery from this toxicity can take a few days and need hospitalization. It has also been blamed for quite a few deaths.
