Zylofuramine[1] is a stimulant drug. It was developed in 1961,[2][3] and was intended for use as an appetite suppressant and for the treatment of senile dementia in the elderly, but there is little information about it and it does not appear to have ever been marketed.[4]

Zylofuramine is legal throughout the world. Its chemical structure has a vague similarity to other N-ethyl substituted stimulant drugs such as ethylamphetamine, but its structure would probably not be close enough for it to be considered a controlled substance analogue.
