4-D (3,5-methoxy-4-trideuteromethoxyphenethylamine) is a lesser-known psychedelic drug. It is one of a few phenethylamines used as a recreational drug that contains deuterium. It is a deuterated analog of mescaline. It may be prepared either as a sulfate salt or a hydrochloride salt. 4-D was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. In his book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved), the dosage is listed as approximately 200–400 mg for the sulfate salt, and 178–356 mg for the hydrochloride salt. 4-D lasts for approximately 12 hours. It causes closed-eye visuals, mild open-eye visuals, color distortion, and mydriasis.[1] Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 4-D.
