Phenethylamine is a chemical that is found naturally in the body. It can also be made in the laboratory.
Phenethylamine is used for athletic performance, depression, weight loss, and to improve mood and attention, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
How does it work?
Phenethylamine stimulates the body to make certain chemicals that play a role in depression and other psychiatric conditions. People who don’t make enough phenethylamine naturally may be helped by taking phenethylamine as a supplement. However, too much phenethylamine might cause side effects similar to the drug amphetamine.
Uses & Effectiveness
Insufficient Evidence for
- Depression. Early research shows that taking 10-60 mg of phenethylamine by mouth per day along with 5 mg of the antidepressant selegiline (Anipryl, Eldepryl) twice per day for 4 weeks relieves depression in 60% of people. Of the people who respond to initial treatment with phenethylamine plus selegiline, 86% show continued depression relief when treated for up to 50 weeks.
- Weight loss.
- Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate phenethylamine for these uses.
Side Effects & Safety
When taken by mouth: Phenethylamine is POSSIBLY UNSAFE for most people. Phenethylamine is similar to the drug amphetamine, and may cause similar side effects, such as rapid heart rate, anxiety, or agitation.
Special Precautions & Warnings:
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn’t enough reliable information to know if it is safe to use phenethylamine when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Bipolar disorder: Use of phenethylamine might cause people with bipolar disorder to convert from depression to mania.
Schizophrenia: Use of phenethylamine might worsen symptoms of schizophrenia, including hallucinations or delusions.
Surgery: Phenethylamine might affect the central nervous system. This could interfere with surgery. Stop taking phenethylamine at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
