I have a few questions about desoxyn if anyone happens to know the answers:

1. Is Desoxyn racemic methamphetamine or just d-methamphetamine (I believe l-methamphetamine is in the vicks degongestant inhaler)?

2. I have read that meth is metabolized to amphetamine... Is it metabolized into both levoamphetamine and dextroamphetamine.

3. Is the conversion to amphetamine clinically significant? My understanding is that one of the benefits of meth or standard amphetamine is that it is less peripherally acting...but if it's converted to amphetamine wouldn't this then have the same peripheral actions as dextro and/or levoamphetamine?

Thanks a bunch
