Drug Drug Description Amphetamine A CNS stimulant and sympathomimetic agent indicated for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Phentermine A sympathomimetic anorectic agent used as a short-term adjunct therapy that is included in a regimen of weight reduction in cases of exogenous obesity. Venlafaxine A selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) used for the treatment of major depression. Sapropterin A cofactor used as an adjunct to phenylalanine restriction in the treatment of phenylketonuria (PKU). Fenfluramine Fenfluramine is a phenethylamine that is structurally similar to serotonin. Due to its ability to increase extracellular serotonin levels, modulate serotonergic and other neurologic receptors, and control neurotransmission, it is effective in treating pharmacoresistant seizures. Methoxamine An alpha adrenergic agonist used to treat hypotension. Dobutamine A beta-1 agonist used to treat cardiac decompensation in patients with organic heart disease or from cardiac surgery. Pseudoephedrine An alpha and beta adrenergic agonist used to treat nasal and sinus congestion, as well as allergic rhinitis. Benzphetamine A sympathomimetic used to manage exogenous obesity short term. Ritodrine An adrenergic beta agonist used to treat premature labor. Salmeterol A long-acting beta-2 adrenergic receptor agonist used to treat asthma and COPD. Salbutamol A beta-2 adrenergic receptor agonist used to treat asthma, bronchitis, COPD, as well as prevent exercise induced bronchospasms. Selegiline A monoamine oxidase inhibitor used to treat major depressive disorder and Parkinson's. Dexfenfluramine For the management of obesity including weight loss and maintenance of weight loss in patients on a reduced calorie diet Lisdexamfetamine A central nervous system (CNS) stimulant used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and moderate to severe eating disorders. Ephedrine An alpha and beta-adrenergic agonist indicated to treat hypotension under anesthesia, allergic conditions, bronchial asthma, and nasal congestion. Mephentermine A sympathomimetic agent used in the treatment of hypotension. MMDA MMDA is a recreational drug. It has no current medical uses and is a Schedule I controlled substance in the USA at present.

Metamfetamine A sympathomimetic agent used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and exogenous obesity. Prenylamine Prenylamine was withdrawn from the Canadian, US, and UK markets in 1988 due to concerns regarding cardiac arrhythmias. Nylidrin A vasodilator used to treat patients with peripheral vascular disorders, and elderly patients with symptoms associated with organic mental disorders. Isoxsuprine A beta-adrenergic agonist used in the symptomatic treatment of cerebrovascular insufficiency, peripheral vascular disease of arteriosclerosis obliterans, thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger's disease) and Raynaud's disease. Hexoprenaline Hexoprenaline is a stimulant of beta 2 adrenergic receptors. It is used as a bronchodilator, antiasthmatic, and tocolytic agent. Fendiline Fendiline is a coronary vasodilator which inhibits calcium function in muscle cells in excitation-contraction coupling. It has been proposed as an antiarrhythmic and antianginal agent. Fendiline is non-selective. Benfluorex Benfluorex is an anorectic and hypolipidemic agent that is structurally related to fenfluramine. It was patented and manufactured by a French pharmaceutical company Servier. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) recommended...
