Pill Library

This page contains photographs and information for pills we have identified during the 2019/20 season that were obtained as MDMA but were not what people thought. They are listed from the top of the page in two tables:

  • Table 1: pills estimated to contain more than one dose of MDMA
  • Table 2: pills containing no MDMA 

If your pill does not appear on this page, this is not a guarantee that it is safe. 

Please note that the amount of active substance present is an estimate only as our technology cannot directly measure dosage or purity. Our spectrometer provides a rough percentage of psychoactive content in a sample. We use this combined with the weight of the pill to reach these estimates. The estimated dosage should be treated as an indication only and we recommend caution.

Pills containing more than one dose of MDMA

These pills are estimated to contain up to three doses in a single pill. A common dose of MDMA is around 80-120 milligrams, depending upon a user’s body weight. We recommend weighing your doses wherever possible.

Taking too much MDMA can result in a very unpleasant experience, health risks, and even death.  If you or someone you know has taken any of these pills and experiences the following, seek medical attention immediately. 

  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • A sharp rise in body temperature 
  • Muscle cramping 
  • Heart palpitations
  • Seizures
  • Unconsciousness

Pills containing no MDMA

These pills were found to contain no MDMA, but contained either another psychoactive substance such as cathinones (“bath salts”), or nothing psychoactive.

Mephedrone produces similar effects to MDMA, but is described as ‘speedier’ and is active in lower doses. A common oral dose is 100-200mg. It has been implicated in a small number of deaths overseas.

Methylone, also known as bk-MDMA, has similar effects to MDMA but is less potent in terms of dose. A common dose is 150-200mg. The identified pill also contains caffeine. This increases the risk of harm as combining stimulants can cause heart problems and psychosis.

Cathinones such as mephedrone and methylone can be dangerous when taken with alcohol, tramadol, or MAOI antidepressants. They can cause insomnia and anxiety, and in high doses, psychosis.
