Drug Addiction

Very little research has been done on synthetic cathinones their potential for abuse and addiction.


Synthetic Drugs

MDPV, Mephedrone, and Methylone are three of the most common synthetic cathinones found is designer drugs today.


Designer Drugs

Synthetic cathinones can be found in "bath salts", one of the most controversial designer drugs sold today.

I could not find any studies that state flatly that these drugs are addictive. However ... there are several studies both in the North America and Europe which state use of them is skyrocketing. That alone may be an indicator they are addictive?
