Abstract

In Chapter 16, “Clinical Effects of 2C-B Abuse”, Esther Papaseit, Clara Pérez-Mañá, Débora González, Francina Fonseca, Marta Torrens, Magí Farré, look at 2C-B, which is one of the most popular synthetic phenethylamines with long-lasting psychedelic effects. The group reviews its pharmacology and provides a detailed analysis of its acute psychedelic effects, both desired and adverse manifestations, and discusses reported cases of acute intoxications, while providing treatment recommendations inclusive of neuropsychiatric and other medical complications. The focus of the chapter is to provide an overview of phenethylamines and how they usually present to clinicians and, more important, when to suspect their use.
