aMT is very active in small doses which means it’s easy to take too much and overdose this can lead to you becoming agitated and having bad experiences like anxiety attacks.
aMT was tested as a potential antidepressant in the sixties but there is actually little information about its harms, especially any long-term harm. It’s difficult to know how any regular users will be affected if they use it for a long time.
There is also a slight risk that aMT will react with other medicines and a range of foods to cause dangerous increases in blood pressure (for example, certain SSRI anti-depressants, some wines and cheeses, or with Bovril or Marmite).
