IMPROVED TRILEPTAL (IT)
I think this already exists and I ran across it while studying a 1970's era index of psychoactive substances, it was either a trichloro-substituted DO-x or a di-chloro DO-x with a methoxy group in the 2',4',5' substitution pattern. It was categorized as a hallucinogen, I'll have to see if I can find it again (my interest being chiefly stimulant-related).~mod edit~: This is a thread for coming up with creative names for existing or novel psychedelics or other drugs, courtesy of an idea that Dresden provided.
Neurotoxins perform quite well as hallucinogens, anyway. In the regard that hallucinogen=psychomimetic in much of the research that exists pre-1980's. "Psychedelic" is a nickname that carries much less baggage in this regard, being to my understanding a made-up word by individuals sympathetic to the cause.Most of those compounds would perform poorly as hallucinogens. 4-iodoamphetamine is already known as a neurotoxin for instance.
Probably worth the effort to spend less time thinking up silly names and more time applying rational QSAR principles.
The term ("mind-manifesting") was made up by Humphrey Osmond a good decade or more before the drugs became a cultural phenomenon. Some of the early researchers hated it. I think Leary, Metzner and Alpert was the first to bring it to prominence."Psychedelic" is a nickname that carries much less baggage in this regard, being to my understanding a made-up word by individuals sympathetic to the cause.
