Fenmetramide is a drug which was patented as an antidepressant by McNeil Laboratories in the 1960s.[1] The drug was never marketed.[2] It is the 5-ketone derivative of phenmetrazine and would similarly be expected to produce psychostimulant effects, though pharmacological data is lacking.

The related compound flumetramide was also investigated during the same time period.[3]
