para-Bromoamphetamine (PBA), also known as 4-bromoamphetamine (4-BA), is an amphetamine derivative which acts as a serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine releasing agent (SNDRA) and produces stimulant effects.

Neurotoxicity[edit]

Like most other para-substituted amphetamines, PBA is highly neurotoxic and produces long-term depletion of brain serotonin.[1]
