Dangers[edit]

>"There have been no reported deaths or hospitalizations from 5-MeO-DALT."

in fact, there is a report on erowid from a hospitalization:

Dosage concerns[edit]

In cited the video, Shulgin states it was personally tested in the 10-12mg range, not the 10-25mg range as is stated in the article upon my writing of this. It is possible that the 10-25mg range might be a more appropriate or accurate dosage range, as higher dosages than 10-12mg have been purportedly used, although I personally cannot confirm nor speculate on the accuracy of that statement. However, as it stands, the wording in the article implies that the 10-25mg range is what was tested by Dr. Shulgin and his wife, which is incorrect. Therefore, I am changing the value to read 10-12mg. If someone wishes to add a sentence that mentions that a higher dose is more common in practice, they are certainly welcome to do so. I feel this change is important because 25mg is more than double the highest dose reported by Dr. Shulgin, and these structures can have a very steep dose-response curve, and creating a potentially dangerous situation.
