Dimethyltryptamine is a methylated derivative of the neurotransmitter tryptamine and often abused for its psychedelic properties. The drug is extremely hallucinogenic and for this reason, it has been outlawed in most states and has no medicinal potential that we know of. Side effects include dizziness, nausea, hallucinations, and other symptoms associated with psychedelic drugs.
