Dimethylcathinone (Metamfepramone, Dimethylpropion) is a stimulant drug related to cathinone and methcathinone.

It is a dialkylaminopropiophenone that can be synthesized from "α"-bromopropiophenone and dimethylamine.

Dimethylcathinone was evaluated as an appetite suppressant and for the treatment of hypotension (low blood pressure) but was never widely marketed. [Soholing WE. Therapy of the orthostatic syndrome. Studies using dimepropion-HCl. "Fortschritte der Medizin". (German) 1982 Feb 18;100(7):289-93.]
