Muscimol a dissociative?[edit]

Dissociation is a particular state of mind with recognizable characteristics. If muscimol produces this state, there should be at least one recorded case of it having done so. I can't find any such cases in any of the relevant literature. Even a review of somewhat unreliable "trip reports" fails to establish a single instance of dissociation produced by muscimol. Furthermore, the mode of action of muscimol would not lead one to believe that it is a dissociative drug. It shares nothing in common with known dissociative drugs. I removed the dissociative drugs template back in Dec. 2007, but it was promptly restored without any justification at all. Let's at least have this unsourced and dubious content stay off the page until someone can grace us with even a nominal rationale for its inclusion. deranged bulbasaur 01:48, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

"Lethal poisonings have occurred from A. muscaria and A. pantherina as well." Bullshit

the molecule diagram is drawn incorrectly, pubchem and other sources draw muscimol with a double bonded oxygen not a single bonded OH group -- someone who takes care of these things should make a correction ASAP! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:55, 28 November 2009 (UTC)


This is a isomere form of the molecule. If you move one hydrogen from the OH to the N, the double bond moves from the C=N to the C=O and this tautomerism is strongly depending on the solvent you use or if you have the crystalline form. The 2-Pyridone article might be a good example for it. --Stone (talk) 15:05, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
