Metamfepramone (INN, also known as dimethylcathinone, dimethylpropion, and dimepropion) is a stimulant drug of the phenethylamine, and cathinone chemical classes. Dimethylcathinone was evaluated as an appetite suppressant and for the treatment of hypotension, but was never widely marketed.[2]

It was used as a recreational drug in Israel under the name rakefet, but was made illegal in 2006.[3]

Metamfepramone is metabolized to produce N-methylpseudoephedrine and methcathinone.[4]
