Abstract

From this study of 140 cases, it is concluded that d-N- Methylamphetamine Hydrochloride or methedrine, when used in psychoneurotic illnesses, particularly in chronic anxiety states, neurodermatitis, and the acute posttraumatic anxieties, produces an emotionally free-flow material that may include painful memories of traumatic experiences, and that will provide the patient with permanent relief.In the majority of cases, the responses evoked are helpful, both diagnostically and therapeutically.
