Encyclopedia > Desoxypipradrol

Desoxypipradrol, also known as 2-(diphenylmethyl)piperidine or 2-DPMP, is a long-acting stimulant drug. Stimulants are drugs that increase alertness and wakefulness. ...


Desoxypipradrol was developed by the pharmaceutical company Ciba-Geigy (now called Novartis) in the 1950s, and researched for applications such as the treatment of narcolepsy and ADHD, however it was dropped from development after an alternative drug methylphenidate was developed by the same company. Methylphenidate was felt to be the superior drug for treating ADHD due to its shorter duration of action and more predictable pharmacokinetics, and while desoxypipradrol was researched for other applications such as to facilitate rapid recovery from anaesthesia [1] its development was not continued. Novartis International AG is a multinational pharmaceutical company based in Basel, Switzerland. ... Narcolepsy is a neurological condition most characterized by Excessive Daytime Sleepiness (EDS) you will most likely experience insomnia, episodes of sleep and disorder of REM or rapid eye movement sleep. ... DISCLAIMER Please remember that Wikipedia is offered for informational use only. ... Methylphenidate (MPH) is an amphetamine-like prescription stimulant commonly used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adults. ... Anesthesia (AE), also anaesthesia (BE), is the process of blocking the perception of pain and other sensations. ...


In more recent time there has been some interest in the use of desoxypipradrol as a legal recreational drug, as its activity profile means it could potentially be used as a stimulant as an alternative to illegal drugs such as amphetamines; however its very long duration of action (as long as 24-48 hours) makes it unlikely to be successful for this application, as prominant side effects such as insomnia and anorexia are likely to outweigh any positive effects. Amphetamine is a synthetic drug originally developed (and still used) as an appetite suppressant. ...


Potentially desoxypipradrol could also be useful for its original application of treating attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, considering that the short half-life of common treatments such as methylphenidate and dexamphetamine has led to the development of long-acting delayed release formulations of these drugs; however if desoxypipradrol attracts any significant attention as a drug of abuse it is likely to quickly become illegal and fade back into obscurity, and this may well be the likely fate of this compound. Desoxypipradrol is not specifically listed as an illegal drug in any country at the present time, but its structural similarity to the illegal drug pipradrol makes it possible that it would be considered a controlled substance analogue in several countries such as the USA, Australia and New Zealand. The Federal Analog Act is a controversial section of the DEA Controlled Substances Act, allowing any chemical substantially similar to an illegal drug (in Schedule I or II) to be treated as if it were also in Schedule I, but only if it is intended for human consumption. ...
