Mefenorex (Rondimen, Pondinil, Anexate) is a stimulant drug which was used as an appetite suppressant. It is an amphetamine derivative which was developed in the 1970s and used for the treatment of obesity.[1][2] Mefenorex produces amphetamine as a metabolite,[3] and has been withdrawn in many countries despite having only mild stimulant effects and relatively little abuse potential.[4]
