The phenylisopropylamine unit is a common structural fragment amongst many centrally-acting agents.
However, these agents do not necessarily produce similar behavioral effects in test subjects.
For example, the phenylisopropylamine derivative amphetamine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant whereas its 2,5-dimethoxy-4-methyl analog, i.e. DOM, is considered to be a hallucinogen.
