Camfetamine (N-methyl-3-phenyl-norbornan-2-amine) is a stimulant drug closely related to the appetite suppressant fencamfamine, being its N-methyl homologue.[1] It has been sold as a designer drug following the banning of mephedrone and related substituted cathinone derivatives in many countries,[2] and reportedly has slightly stronger stimulant effects than fencamfamine, but with correspondingly more severe side effects[ref].
