2-Benzylpiperidine is a stimulant drug of the piperidine chemical class. It is similar in structure to other drugs such as methylphenidate and desoxypipradrol but around 20 times less potent, and while it boosts noradrenaline levels to around the same extent as dexamphetamine,[1] it has very little effect on dopamine levels, with its binding affinity for the dopamine transporter around 175 times lower than for the noradrenaline transporter.[2] 2-benzylpiperidine is little used as a stimulant, with its main use being as a synthetic intermediate in the manufacture of other drugs.[3][4][5]
