Heard various reports of many people having very bad reactions to these pills last weekend. People have described PMA like effects, and apparently they've indicated PMA on a mandelin reagent test. Still waiting for confirmation, but there's a pillreport from feb in QLD matching the description:
If anyone has any information they could share it'd be really helpful.
(Melbourne) WARNING: Pink batmans - suspected PMA
- DO NOT TAKE THESE PILLS - waiting on an updated picture and reagent test results but a pill matching this description is going around and by several accounts is DANGEROUS and likely contains PMA (nicknamed "death")
PMA (para-Methoxyamphetamine) is a strong psychedelic which may cause dangerous overheating of the body. It is basically serotonin syndrome in a single compound, and dangerous at any dose. The effects of PMA have a SLOW ONSET (can take up to one hour). If you've taken ecstasy, and feel like it's "not working" DO NOT REDOSE OR TAKE ANOTHER PILL as this could be FATAL. The main effects include feeling alert, excitement, stimulation, visual distortions and hallucinations. Side-effects include dry mouth, loss of appetite, dizziness, poor concentration, racing heart, high body temperature, panic, agitation, and severe sweating. In extreme cases, PMA can cause dehydration, confusion, fits and overheating, which may prove fatal. If you're having a bad reaction, or think you might have taken PMA, SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.
