Furfenorex (Frugalan) is a stimulant drug derived from methamphetamine, which was developed in the 1960s and used as an appetite suppressant for the treatment of obesity. [Boissier JR, Dumont C, Ratouis R, Moisy D. Pharmacologic study of an anorexigenic agent: furfenorex. (French). "Archives Internationales de Pharmacodynamie et de Therapie". 1967 May;167(1):150-62.] It produces methamphetamine as a metabolite, [Marsel J, Doring G, Remberg G, Spiteller G. Methamphetamine - a metabolite of the anorectics Benzphetamine and Furfenorex. (German). "Zeitschrift fur Rechtsmedizin". 1972;70(4):245-50.] and is no longer used, probably due to problems with abuse.
