Propylhexedrine is an amphetamine drug available over the counter as a nasal inhaler.

The drug is a TAAR1 agonist, like amphetamine and methamphetamine, although it is much less potent.

In the US, Benzedrex is the successor to Benzedrine, a similar product which contained racemic amphetamine.

Legality and Availability[edit]

United States[edit]

Propylhexedrine is available over-the-counter in the United States. Unlike ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, propylhexedrine sales are not monitored or restricted. As a result, it is possible to order large quantities (in the form of Benzedrex inhalers) online or in retail locations.

Canada[edit]

Propylhexedrine is a schedule V controlled substance, but is available over the counter.

Australia[edit]

Propylhexedrine is available by prescription only.

Extraction[edit]

Various methods have been developed to extract propylhexedrine from the cotton rods found in Benzedrex inhalers.
