5-MeO-DALT is also referred to as N,N-diallyl-5-methoxytryptamine and 5-methoxy-N,N-diallyl-tryptamine. It is a psychedelic tryptamine that is typically used orally or through insufflation. Erowid (2011) reported that the oral dosage of 5-MeO-DALT ranges from 4 mg to 25 mg. Shulgin (2004) reported that the effects usually last for 2 to 4 hours with a “rapid onset and rapid drop-off”.

Side Effects & Adverse Reactions:
There is limited empirical data about the side effects, adverse reactions, long term damage, and/or addiction potential of 5-MeO-DALT. According to Jebadurai (2013), some of the potential negative effects include:
- Retrograde amnesia
- Violent vomiting
- Tightness of chest and difficulty in breathing
- Transient paranoid delusions
Remember, research chemicals are experimental chemicals that are not approved for human consumption. This is because not enough data exists currently about their effects in humans. Although some people are willing to ingest the research chemical 5-MeO-DALT, it is unreasonable to assume that it is in any way safe to use recreationally.
Deaths and Overdoses:
Corkery et al. (2012) reported a death involving the use of 5-MeO-DALT involving a man in his mid-20s who died in 2010; the coroner concluded that the man “died from injuries sustained after being hit by a lorry whilst under the influence of 5-MeO-DALT”.
