by Uday GJ, Josh UG, Bhat SM. Department of Psychiatry, Kasturba Medical College Hospital, Manipal, India. Br J Psychiatry. 1988 Jan;152:129-31
Dependence on mephentermine, a widely used sympathomimetic pressor agent, is so far unreported, although misuse of inhalers is recognised. A case of mephentermine dependence associated with chronic psychosis is reported here. Psychosis initially surfaced with chronic dexamphetamine abuse, but was sustained for 3 years by mephentermine. After a period of remission lasting for 4 years, the patient again developed psychosis on restarting abuse of mephentermine, which lasted for 5 years.
