Melanotan II

Melanotan II is a peptide hormone belonging to the alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) class of mimetics. Melanotan II is a synthetic analog pituitary derived Melanocortin. The peptide is primarily known for its ability to help with tanning but is also used to aid in erectile function. Melanotan II, also referred to as MT-2, has no use of significance beyond tanning and erectile function.

Melanotan II Function and Traits
Melanotan II (MT-2) functions by stimulating the alpha-MSH receptor. This is a receptor that produces melanin, which aids in the darkening of skin pigmentation. Because of this action, the individual will tan easier and darker than he would without the use of MT-2.

There are several alpha-MSH receptors in the body. Melanotan II functions by stimulating the MC1-5 receptor. Stimulation of this receptor promotes darkening of the skin. MT-2 also stimulates the MC4 receptor, which acts to increase penile erectile function.

Clinical trials have shown promising results for Melanotan II in regards to erectile dysfunction. However, despite clinical trials the peptide has never been approved by the U.S. government for human use:

  • 2000 - UAZ College of Medicine (Urology) - Findings: Promoted erections in 17 of 20 subjects, tip rigidity increased by 80%. 68% experienced increase in libido.
  • 1998 - UAZ College of Medicine (Pharmacology) - Findings: Promoted erections in 80% of men, tip rigidity increased by 80%.
Note - all erectile dysfunction studies are based on psychogenic erectile dysfunction, which refers to erectile dysfunction of a physiological nature not a physical one. However, many anecdotal reports state stronger erections and better performance when used as a sex aid despite no existing erectile dysfunction.

Effects of Melanotan II
The effects of Melanotan two revolve around nothing more than tanning and possible erectile dysfunction relief. A darker and deeper tan may be noticed in a few days (assuming one is also tanning) and should produce notable results in a few weeks. The longer one uses MT-2 the darker he will get.

The effects of Melanotan II on erectile dysfunction take approximately 4-6 hours to take effect and should last 6-12 hours depending on individual response. Timing is important if used for this purpose. However, there are those that run small daily to every other day doses in order to provide a maintenance relief, but this can prove problematic to the skin if not careful.

Side Effects of Melanotan II
The most common side effect of Melanotan II is appetite suppression, but it should not be as significant as one might associate with diet or fat loss medications. Nausea and fatigue or a lightheaded feeling can also be somewhat common in some individuals. Such effects may be strong but should clear quickly. Dosing may need to be reduced should such effects occur until a more comfortable level is reached.

The side effects of Melanotan II can also include the darkening of hair, although not significantly. It may also include the darkening of moles, and in some cases, may be cause to discontinue use. Darkening of moles is the one side effect of Melanotan II an individual would want to keep a close eye on.

Melanotan II Administration
Melanotan II is provided in freeze-dried (lyophilized) form and reconstituted with bacteriostatic water. MT-2 may be injected subcutaneously or intramuscularly with subcutaneous being the most common and convenient. Melanotan II should be kept refrigerated at all times, and should be discarded in 30 days after reconstitution.

Melanotan II is typically taken at a dose of 0.5-2mg per day with 0.5-1mg being enough for most individuals who use it for tanning purposes. The same 0.5-1mg dosing is sufficient for erectile dysfunction treatment.

Is there any more information on mixing ? Says its reconstructed with bac water just wondering how this is done exactly and what you need to do it i guess or am I reading this wrong and its a tablet you would take ? I'm interested in learning more on use for tanning and ED.

You simply figure out how much you plan to run. I added 2mls of bac water so that I could run 250mcg a day. Injected subq.

So if your vial contains 5mg. Adding 1ml of bac water means every 10 units will be 500mcg. Im not sure how you got taking a tab from the part about reconstituting it with bac water.(i can't remember the concentration in my vials so that's just an example)


I noticed flushing and stomach pains for my first 2 administrations. No extra erections though. I started to notice darkening of my skin without the use of tanning beds. However I also noticed significant darkening of freckles around my face that offset the darkening of my skin. So I discontinued use until this spring when I can tan with ease.

Ya the more research I've done on this i read darkening of freckles and moles and most people don't like that and discontinued their use . I think I'm gonna let this idea sit for a while and if I decide in the future to try it out I will have some solid info . Thanks alot man 🤙

I tried it and it literally was turning me black. I did it on 2mls of bac water like directions instructed. I had to go to dermatologist and they had to cut skin off my finger to test it at the lab and they said my pigment was changing in to black. Once I stop taking it my fingers went to normal I had black circles on my fingers. This was 2 years ago. I forgot to mention that was only one week of using Melanotan II.

thats what i did. but firs dose was 1/2 that then 3/4 then full 250. sometimes 250 before and after tanning to speed things up.
first dosage made me want to vomit a moment then gave me a boner. never had a side after that first time.
dont know how many summers ive used it but ive stopped because i have some permanently blackened freckles and i tan much easier now.

Hey @Annika how much were you taking daily and how many minutes were you tanning on average a week?

I tried it about 15 years ago when it first kinda became available...

I recall taking it 2 or 3 times over a week or so.. Yup, turned me pretty fing dark pretty fast.. Darker than I have ever been before even at the end of the summer..

What ever happened to the idea that it would lower skin cancer as it would help skin darken to be less suceptible to UV light damge?

If i wanted to get real dark, I'd take 1mg/day for 10 days straight. That would get me a dark, dark, brown. From there, I could maintain that color with 1 or 2 shots a week.

Is that in conjunction with tanning? Or just dosing

I just have to say. I told the gf about mt2 and then showed her your results. She's been hounding me to pin her with it constantly. Haha

Many years ago, I took this while preparing for a trip down south. I did some pre-trip tanning along with the MT2 and got darker than I had ever been. But then I got down south and holy shit.... Let's just say if I were in politics I'd be on the news for dressing up in "blackface". I have pictures where I am very noticeably darker than the black locals. I also got sent for a "random search" when I arrived back in Canada with 1 black man and 2 middle eastern guys. Racist bastards!

A few summers ago, after running some MT2, i was sitting down in the shade with some sunglasses on when an old Filipino lady came up and started speaking Tagalog to me. I explained to her that I didn't understand her, then she asked me why my parents never taught me to speak it, heheh. That stuff can get you dark.
