MDEA (3,4-methylenedioxy-N-ethylamphetamine; MDE, "Eve") is a psychedelic and entactogenic drug of the phenethylamine and amphetamine chemical classes.

Like MDA, MDEA acts as a serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine releasing agent.[1][2][3]

The subjective effects of MDEA are very similar to those of MDMA. However, the euphoric and "loved up" feelings associated with MDMA are not as pronounced in comparison. The effects of MDEA are also not as stimulating as MDMA, as it is said to be somewhat stoning in high doses and may be responsible for rumors of heroin-laced "ecstasy" tablets.
