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

Like 3,4-methylenedioxyamphetamine (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 methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA). However, the euphoric and "loved up" feelings associated with MDMA are not as pronounced in comparison. It is said to be stoning in high doses.[3]
