Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mephentermine misuse or dependence has been rarely reported in the literature. This is surprising as mephentermine bears a close structural similarity to methamphetamine. Here we report a case of mephentermine dependence with induced psychosis. A 23-year-old professional weightlifter used to administer mephentermine (60 mg) for improving performance in tournaments. The patient became dependent on mephentermine in 2009, and his consumption increased to 100-150 mg every 2-3 days since August 2012 until his presentation in clinic in mid-October 2012. He developed psychosis and had persecutory delusions. Remission of psychosis was seen with stopping use of mephentermine and use of antipsychotic medication.
