Synthacaine is an equal combination and preparation of Dimethocaine and camfetamine. Dimethocaine has a property of local anesthetic which is half of cocaine. In other hand Camfetamine is another kind of research chemical which is carefully connected with Fencamfamine .
Synthacaine is helpful to review the results of both chemicals such as Dimethocaine and camfetamine together, to determine if there is any type of competitive binding happening for the similar receptor. This mixture of these chemicals makes it is simple and easy to use them together at the same time into laboratory. It is possible that both combine towards the dopamine receptor as agonists; similar to Fencamfamine However, research is required to understand their action completely.
Synthacaine is not an original or natural compound as it is the mixture of other research chemicals. In research industries it is a ready to use compound. Researchers or scientists use such mixtures into their research directly but the ratio of compounds must be in right quantity and moreover it must be pure also. The research is based upon the purity of the compound.
Just like cocaine, dimethocaine inhibits the uptake of dopamine in the brain by interfering with the dopamine transporters.The potency of these drugs is linked to their affinity for the dopamine transporters, and their potency to inhibit dopamine uptake.
In studies with rhesus monkeys the affinity of dimethocaine for dopamine transporters is smaller than that of cocaine, whereas dimethocaine’s potency to inhibit dopamine uptake is similar. This means that more of dimethocaine is needed to reach a similar response. The peak effects occurred within 10 to 20 minutes after the injection and decreased to baseline levels within an hour.
Dimethocaine is often abused as a legal substitute for cocaine. The drug is administered intravenously or nasally, because ingestion would lead to rapid hydrolyzation.It’s positive effects are euphoria, stimulation, increased talkativeness and mood lift.However, because the drug acts similar as cocaine, it has comparable negative side effects. These side effects include: tachycardia, difficulty with breathing, pain on the chest, vasoconstriction, insomnia, paranoia and anxiety.Dimethocaine probably poses larger health issues than cocaine. This is due to the fact that more dimethocaine must be administered to produce the same euphoric feeling, resulting in larger risk for the negative effects.
