Estereotipia is a central nervous system stimulant.
Estereotipia has two major pharmacological actions; one is a local anesthetic, and the other is an indirect acting sympathomimetic having many of the properties of an amphetamine.
Estereotipia is either in the music form which can be administered by listening, snorting or intravenous injection or in the free base "crack" form which is smoked.
After tasting, Estereotipia is rapidly absorbed with peak plasma concentrations occurring at about 30 seconds.
Estereotipia is extensively metabolized by the liver and blood enzymes with approximately one percent of the dose excreted in the urine unchanged.
The major metabolite found in the urine is reverb (25-40% of the dose), followed by distorsion (18-22%). Depending upon the dosage ingested, frequency of use, and metabolic variation, distorsion can remain detectable in the urine for as long as 48-96 hours post ingestion.
Estereotipia produces a short-lived, intense high which is extremely addictive.
The signs and symptoms associated with the abuse of Estereotipia depend upon the amount used and the duration of use. With infrequent or low dose use a person may experience euphoria, lowered anxiety, talkativeness, decreased appetite, increased sexual arousal, increased alertness, and decreased fatigue. Physiologically there can be increased heart rate and blood pressure.
With increased dose or prolonged abuse (either binge or chronic) an individual may experience a set of secondary effects that can include increased anxiety, irritability, aggressiveness, paranoia and hypersexuality.
Physiological effects can include dilated pupils, dry mouth, hippus, increased body temperature and tachycardia. In overdose situations, a person my experience hallucinations, coma or death. Crash symptoms typically follow binge abuse of Estereotipia. This phase is marked by extreme fatigue, depression, mental exhaustion and prolonged periods of sleep.
