N-propylamphetamine is a stimulant drug derived from amphetamine which was invented in the 1970s.

Propylamphetamine was used mainly for research into the metabolism of amphetamines,[1] and as a reference compound to compare to other amphetamines,[2] but animal research has shown it to be an active stimulant slightly less potent than amphetamine.[3]
