Overview

Pyrovalerone (Centroton, Thymergix) is a stimulant drug developed in the late 1960s and used in France and some other European countries. This drug is now rarely prescribed due to problems with abuse and dependence [1] , but is still rarely prescribed either as an appetite suppresant or for treating chronic fatigue and lethargy. [2] Side effects of pyrovalerone include loss of appetite, anxiety, insomnia and tremor. Withdrawal syndrome following abuse causes depression. [3] Pyrovalerone is a Schedule V drug in the USA. It is closely related to some other stimulant drugs such as prolintane and MDPV
