I believe the chirality in the structural image may be incorrect. As this compound is norpseudoephedrine, the hydroxyl group in the 1 position should be facing the opposite way, three dimensionally, than the last carbon in the propyl chain. Can anyone verify this? --CCRoberts Oct17,2006 22:04 EST

I think you are right. I have corrected the image accordingly. --Ed (Edgar181) 12:50, 18 October 2006 (UTC)


I think there is another page about the same substance here: Cathinone. Ahlabonde 11:06, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Nope, that's slightly different. Lacks a hydrogen, and therefore is a ketone and not an alcohol. Fuzzform 05:27, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Note It is (was?) used in a dieting pill called "Thinz." Also, incidentally in my experimentation (non scientific)(1990) it certainly was the best (worst?) drug to prevent an erection. It was more effective (100% on all 3 occasions) in preventing an erection than phenylephrine, pseudoephedrine, opiates, amphetamine and others, none of which (in pharmaceutical or recreational dosages) were ever 100% effective (in myself.) I wonder if it has applications for the treatment of priapism.

I apologize for etiquette/editing errors. Ecstatist (talk) 21:51, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
