A comparison of the effects of phenylpropanolamine, d-amphetamine and d-norpseudoephedrine on open-field locomotion and food intake in the rat



A comparison of the effects of phenylpropanolamine, d-amphetamine and d-norpseudoephedrine on open-field locomotion and food intake in the rat



Appetite 9(1): 31-37



d,l-Norephedrine (PPA) is available as an over-the-counter appetite suppressant and nasal decongestant in the USA. The pseudoisomer, d-norpseudoephedrine, is available as an appetite suppresent in Europe, and has been isolated as one of the stimulatory components (cathine) of the khat plant. Some authors have misidentified cathine as PPA and confusion in the literature has resulted.
