D-Deprenyl, also known as or dextro-N-propargyl-N-methylamphetamine, is an MAO-B inhibitor, as well as prodrug to D-amphetamine and D-methamphetamine, and therefore a norepinephrine-dopamine releasing agent. It is the opposite enantiomer of L-deprenyl (selegiline).

L-Deprenyl, also an MAO-B inhibitor, metabolizes to L-amphetamine and l-methamphetamine, which are both monoamine releasing agents. In contrast, D-deprenyl additionally has dopaminergic effects and has been found to be reinforcing in scientific research, whereas L-Deprenyl is not know to have any appreciable psychological reinforcement.[1][dubious ]
