Camfetamine is also referred to as N-methyl-3-phenyl-norbornan-2-amine. It is a stimulant drug that is closely related to the appetite suppressant fencamfamine. Camfetamine was developed as an analeptic by Merck in the 1960s, but it was never approved for medical use. In 2011, camfetamine emerged as one of the new designer drugs that “legal high” vendors are distributing as a replacement for mephedrone and other substituted cathinone derivatives, which have been banned in many countries (EMCDDA).

Side Effects & Adverse Reactions:
There is limited empirical data about the side effects, adverse reactions, long term damage, and/or addiction potential of camfetamine. Remember, research chemicals are experimental chemicals that are not approved for human consumption. This is because not enough data exists currently about their effects in humans. Although some people are willing to ingest the research chemical camfetamine, it is unreasonable to assume that it is in any way safe to use recreationally.
