SCP-XXX is an unlabeled bottle of thirty-nine (39) 5-milligram tablets of an unknown medication. Chemical analysis reveals tablets to be an unrecognized phenethylamine variant. Furthermore, subjects will show effects consistent with that of methamphetamine when they are administered a single dose of SCP-XXX.

However, SCP-XXX has several major differences from methamphetamine.

''Dr. ████'' So, tell me. How do you feel?
''█-██'': I am feeling. I'm actually feeling just great, actually. Better than you'd think, though that was some really strong shit you gave me. I noticed that the meals you guys are giving me are actually not that bad once you get used to it, but it was also alright back when I was in prison. All in all, I think it's a matter of just getting used to your surroundings. But, yeah, back to your question. I'm feeling alright, I guess. Normal. Normal, is all. It's all good.
''Dr. ████'' Interesting. Can you give me an educated guess as to what it was we gave to you?
''█-██'' You kidding me? Do you think I'm fucking stupid? It's meth. It's obviously meth. I know meth when I see and feel it. Don't think I don't know my shit. Fuck you. Fuck you!
[█-██'s nose begins to bleed slightly.]
'Dr. ████'' Right. Do you realize you're bleeding?
''█-██'' Bleeding? What do you mean, bleeding? Am I going to die? Are you trying to kill me?! Shit. Shit, shit, shit. What did you give me? I have rights, I demand to know! What did you give me? Please, just tell…
[█-██ stops talking for a moment, and begins to hyperventilate.]
''Dr. ████'' Are you feeling alright?
[█-██ coughs up a large mass of hair, lung tissue, and [DATA EXPUNGED].
''Dr. ████'' Well, Goddamn.
[█-██ begins to cry uncontrollably as blood and saliva leak out of his mouth.]
