What is the difference between propylhexedrine and methamphetamine?

Propylhexedrine is structurally similar to amphetamine and, therefore, also to methamphetamine. Both indirectly stimulate the central nervous system and both have been used to suppress appetite for obesity treatment. However, methamphetamine is classified as a schedule two, C-II drug by the United States Controlled Substances Act (CSA), because it has a high abuse potential. Medically, it is intended for treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in people 12 years of age and older. Methamphetamine can be extremely habit-forming and, if abused,  can cause serious health problems including heart problems and death.
