What is AMT?
AMT stands for Alpha-methyltryptamine. AMT is the indole analog of amphetamine, which accounts for it's stimulant properties. It has some MAOI properties and was studied for a time as an antidepressant. AMT is a research chemical. Make sure you understand this fully before you try it.
What is the history of AMT?
Alpha-methyltryptamine was studied in the 1960's by a couple pharmaceutical companies as a potential antidepressant for it's MAOI properties, along with AET. AET became marketed by the Upjohn Company as Monase, but is now a Schedule 1 drug. AMT was available in the 60's in the Soviet Union in 5 and 10 mg tablets under the name of Indopan. Today, not a lot is known about it and not much (if any) formal research is being done.
What is the experience like (general effects summary)?
The stimulant effects are like amphetamine, with the visuals being similar to LSD, though less intense. The mental effects are also similar to LSD, only less intense. Most find these effects very enjoyable until the comedown. Depending on how much you've eaten, you will begin to feel the effects in 30 minutes to an hour. The experience will build over the next hour or so and you will peak and level off for about 4-8 hours. The comedown can last anywhere from 3-5 hours, and you will feel the after effects between 2-8 hours. During the comedown (~T+12h, but sometimes as far as ~T+20h), there will be a definite crash. The intensity of the crash seems to be in approximate correlation with the dose. Higher doses have quite an unpleasant comdown. You want to sleep very badly, but it is usually beyond impossible. I think this quote from Bob Seger's "Turn The Page" applies to AMT:
"But your thoughts will soon be wanderin', the way they always do. When you're ridin' sixteen hours, and there's
nothing much to do. And you don't feel much like ridin', you just wish the trip was through."
What are some of the specific effects?
According to Erowid's AMT Vault:

increased awareness and appreciation of music, and empathogenic qualities.
Neutral effects include: general change in consciousness, blurred vision, restlessness, yawning, and dilated pupils.
