Users of mephedrone say that it gives a feeling of stimulation, and that it boosts the following functions:

  • alertness
  • restlessness
  • euphoria
  • excitement
  • the urge to talk
  • openness
  • sex drive

Some say that it makes them feel more confident, talkative, and alert.

People using mephedrone report that the effects of mephedrone last about an hour. They are similar to a combination of ecstasy and cocaine.

Versus methadone

Although their names sound similar, mephedrone and methadone are entirely different.

Mephedrone is a recreational drug without any medical application. Many users believe that its occasional use is not habit-forming, but this has not been proven. Studies suggest that it induces a “binge-like craving.”
