Dimethocaine Hydrochloride Usage And Synthesis
Chemical Properties Off-White Solid
Uses A local anesthetic with stimulant properties. Studies have shown its potency to be about half that of Cocaine (C633500).
Uses Dimethocaine is a local anesthetic that, because of its similarity in action to cocaine, has potential for abuse. This compound completely inhibits dopamine uptake in rat striatal synaptosomes with an IC50 value of 1.2 μM comparable to that of cocaine (IC50 = 0.7 μM). As a result, dimethocaine dose-dependently substitutes for cocaine in drug discrimination tests in rats and rhesus monkeys. This product is intended for forensic and research purposes.
Description of Dimethocaine Hydrochloride
Dimethocaine (Larocaine) is a local anesthetic with stimulant properties that some studies have shown to be half the potency of cocaine.
When a product sold online in the UK in June 2010, advertised as dimethocaine was tested, it was found to in fact be a mixture of caffeine and lidocaine, and the lack of any dopaminergic stimulant ingredient in such mixes may explain the limited recreational effects reported by many users. Other samples tested have however been shown to contain genuine dimethocaine, and one branded “bath salt” product containing primarily dimethocaine as the active ingredient, was noted to have been particularly subject to abuse by intravenous drug users in Ireland.
