Methamnetamine (also known as methylnaphetamine, MNA, MNT and PAL-1046) is a triple monoamine releasing agent and N-methyl analog of the non-neurotoxic experimental drug naphthylaminopropane and the naphthalene analog of methamphetamine.[1][2][3] It has been sold online as a designer drug.[4][5]

It acts as a releasing agent of serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine, with EC50 values of 13 nM, 34 nM, and 10 nM, respectively.[1]
