|Ideal sources for Wikipedia's health content are defined in the guideline Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources (medicine) and are typically review articles. Here are links to possibly useful sources of information about Β-Methylphenethylamine.
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
It is described as a designer drug, but this is not true, you find it in this tree: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acacia_rigidula. So this should be corrected.
- If you read this carefully, you will NOT find any mention of β-methylphenethylamine. N-methyl-β-phenethylamine is not the same thing! The findings reported in this article are highly dubious, in any case (see discussion in WP entry for amphetamine).Xprofj (talk) 15:29, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
amphetamine like activity?
Latest revision to article
I deleted the original reference to the presence of β-methylphenethylamine in Texas acacia species because this compound is NOT actually mentioned in the article. Furthermore, this article itself is highly dubious (see discussion under WP entry for amphetamine). I also deleted the comments about β-methylphenethylamine being a "stimulant" drug, since there is no reference in the literature concerning this property. If there is "anecdotal" evidence, then it should be entered as such, with the appropriate citation. Xprofj (talk) 15:29, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
There is a scientific error in the line that reads: The β-methyl compound also had ~ 2 x the broncho-constricting power of amphetamine (as measured using the isolated rabbit lung)
It should read:
The β-methyl compound also had ~ 2 x the broncho-dilating power of amphetamine (as measured using the isolated rabbit lung)
Stimulants are vaso-constrictors on blood vessels but broncho-dilators when it comes to lungs. Therapeutic example is ventolin (Beta agonist) and Theophylline a natural stimulant.
