5-MeO-AMT is an entheogenic drug soluble in alcohol. It is one of the most potent tryptamines; that is, a very small amount is needed to achieve intense effects.

It is supposedly sold in 4mg tablets by the street name Alpha-O and taken as a recreational drug. Since the DEA arrests of the makers of 95% of the United State's LSD, 5-MeO-AMT has increasingly been sold as LSD in liquid or sugar cube form.

Consumption is most often oral, but the substance may be insufflated, smoked, or injected, in probable decreasing order of frequency. The drug is well-known for the nausea and dysphoria which often occur shortly after its ingestion. The high takes around 1 hour to set in orally, and often peaks between 2 and 3 hours. The effects can last another 8-12 hours. Other routes of consumption "kick in" faster.

When users take more "hits" of 5-MeO-AMT than is normal, possibly thinking it is the relatively safer LSD, they may overdose. Overdosing can also occur at dosages in the normal (for most users) range, as low as 8 mg. This has led to at least a few hospitalizations and possibly one death. It is likely that the overdose potential of the compound is due to its sympathomimetic effects, as the side effects noted in overdose cases include cardiac arrythmia and seizure.

The sympathomimetic effects may in turn be caused by 5-MeO-AMT's structural similarity to the amphetamines. As noted by Alexander Shulgin, the alpha-methylated tryptamines can be looked at as the tryptamine homologues of the amphetamines (alpha-methylated phenethylamines).
