Proscaline, or 4-propoxy-3,5-DMPEA is a psychedelic and hallucinogenic drug, used by some as an entheogen. It has structural and pharmacodynamic properties similar to the drugs mescaline, isoproscaline, and escaline.

Chemistry[edit]

Proscaline is in a class of compounds commonly known as phenethylamines, and is the 4-propyloxy homologue of mescaline. The full name of the chemical is 4-propyloxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine.

Effects[edit]

Proscaline produces psychedelic effects that can last 12 hours.

Pharmacology[edit]

The mechanism that produces proscaline’s hallucinogenic and entheogenic effects is unknown, though is most likely attributable to 5HT2A and 5HT2C receptor agonism, among others.

Popularity[edit]

Proscaline is virtually unknown on the black market. Limited accounts of proscaline can be found in journal articles, and in the book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved).

Legality[edit]

Proscaline is unscheduled and unregulated in the United States.
