Chemical properties

Phenaminum is provided to Wikipedias in article under the name amphetamine. Also this substance has the name alpha metilfeniletilamin. The chemical compound represents a strong stimulator of the central nervous system, derivative a feniletilamina. Means stimulates development of specific neuromediators of noradrenaline and dopamine.

Means is carried to recreational psychoactive things which can cause strong mental dependence. Turnover of amphetamine in the world is limited to the national and international legislation.

For the first time this substance was synthesized in 1887 in Germany. By 20 years of the 20th its century began to apply as substitute of eurysynusic ephedrine to treatment of bronchial asthma. In 1930 the American biochemist Gordon Alles investigated psychoactive properties of Phenaminum. By 1937 medicine began to be let out in the form of capsules for treatment of an illness of Parkinson, a narcolepsy and a depression as tablets for weight loss. Since then many patients began to abuse this drug.

Especially actively medicine began to be applied during World War II and in post-war years. By 60 years of the 20th century substance use effects, amphetamine psychoses, cases of recreational use were everywhere observed. In 1970 on the International convention on psychotropic substances means was entered in the list of controlled drugs.

Phenaminum in the form of the free basis represents the oily colourless liquid possessing a specific fish smell. It is badly dissolved in water, but is well soluble in organic solvents. In drugs substance most often is in a type of salts which are well dissolved in water. Sulfate, phosphate and a hydrochloride of Phenaminum – white finely divided powder. The hydrochloride is also soluble in methanol, chloroform and ethanol.

The space isomerism is characteristic of this chemical compound. Substance exists in the form of couple of enantiomer: left-handed and dextrorotatory. It should be noted that S-(+) - amphetamine or dekstroamfetamin (right) is 4 times stronger than R-(−) - amphetamine. Levamfetamin stronger influences a sympathetic nervous system. The molecular mass of Phenaminum = 135,2 grams on mol.

In the medical purposes substance is let out in the form of tablets or capsules for peroral use. Addicts prefer to accept means intranazalno or orally, is more rare – intravenously.

Pharmacological action

Stimulating central nervous system, peripheral adrenomimetichesky.

Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

Substance considerably improves mood, increases attention and working capacity, gives feeling of confidence and comfort. Also Phenaminum increases speech and physical activity, suppresses appetite, eliminates drowsiness. Means stimulates a sympathetic nervous system, raises the ABP, causes a mydriasis.

Under effect of the medicine emission of catecholamines, especially dopamine and noradrenaline from presynaptic nerve terminations increases. At usual conditions emission of dopamine happens by an exocytosis of vesicles which support him. Then dopamine is back taken in a cell and the DAT conveyor moves a neuromediator to cytoplasm, and the VMAT conveyor – back to a vesicle. After amphetamine reception conveyors begin to move dopamine from a vesicle to cytoplasm further in a synaptic gap. Mechanism of emission of noradrenaline similar. Also substance stimulates serotonin emission, but is considerable to a lesser extent.

At the use of tablets and capsules biological availability of means makes about 70%. Substance has average extent of linkng with proteins of plasma – from 15 to 40%. Medicine breaks a blood-brain barrier. Medicine by means of P450 cytochrome (CYP2D6, CYP3A4 and CYP1A2) and enzyme flavin-soderzhashchyaya monooxygenase is metabolized. It is remarkable that the right isomer is metabolized more actively than left.

About 30% of substance are removed from an organism in not changed view with the help of kidneys. Depending on a hydrogen indicator of urine the elimination half-life of means makes from 8 to 30 hours (accelerates in acid medium). Also means is removed in the form of hippuric acid, para-hydroxyamphetamine, phenylacetone, a benzoilglyukuronid and a norefedrin.
