Hydroxyamfetamine hydrobromide is a sympathomimetic with an action similar to that of ephedrine, but it has little or no stimulant effect on the CNS. It was formerly used as a vasopressor and in the management of some cardiac disorders. In ophthalmology, hydroxyamfetamine hydrobromide has been used in a 1% solution as a mydriatic and in the diagnosis of Horner’s syndrome.
