N,N-Dimethylamphetamine is a stimulant drug related to other amphetamines such as methamphetamine.
Additional recommended knowledge
Dimethylamphetamine has weaker stimulant effects than amphetamine or methamphetamine and is considerably less addictive and less neurotoxic compared to methamphetamine. However it still retains some mild stimulant effects and abuse potential, and is a Schedule I controlled drug.
Dimethylamphetamine has occasionally been found in illicit methamphetamine laboratories, but is usually an impurity rather than the desired product. It may be produced by accident when methamphetamine is synthesised by methylation of amphetamine but the reaction temperature is too high or an excess of methylating agent is used.
