Abstract

We describe four patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction in association with chronic abuse of the amphetamine analog, propylhexedrine. Propylhexedrine, an alicyclic aliphatic sympathomimetic amine, is classified as an amphetamine because of its closely related chemical structure as well as its similar stimulant and anorexiant effects. It is used in this country stimulant and anorexiant effects. It is used in this country as a nasal decongestant and in Europe as an oral anorectic agent.
