It is banned by many sports authorities and governmental agencies. In April 1944, Eli Lilly and Company introduced methylhexanamine under the brand name Forthane as a nasal decongestant. Patrick Arnold reintroduced methylhexanamine in 2006 as a supplement, after the final ban of ephedrine in the United States in 2005. Arnold introduced it under the trademarked name Geranamine, a held by his company. Methylhexanamine-containing supplements sometimes list geranium oil or geranium extract as a source of methylhexanamine, geranium oils do not contain methylhexanamine, and the methylhexanamine in these supplements is added in the form of synthetic material. Recent studies have shown that DMAA is found in types of geraniums. Methylhexanamine is a sympathomimetic drug that constricts blood vessels and thus has effects on the heart, lungs. It causes bronchodilation, inhibits peristalsis in the intestines, and has diuretic effects, because of the long half-life, there is a risk that repeated doses within 24–36 hours could lead to steadily stronger pharmacological effects.
The LD50 for methylhexanamine is 39 mg/kg in mice and 72.5 mg/kg in rats, numerous adverse events and at least five deaths have been reported in association with methylhexanamine-containing dietary supplements. A2012 review by a panel convened by the U. S. However, DMAA should be further studied to evaluate its safety. Data from the control study suggest that the frequency and amount of DMAA use and risk of specific AMEs, particularly heat injuries and rhabdomyolysis. To continue the prohibition of sales of DMAA-containing products in Exchanges, a 2012 review of the regulatory status of DMAA found that 1, 3-Dimethylamylamine is a pressor amine often found in food supplements for athletes at dosages of 25-65 mg. We therefore reviewed the literature on DMAA and similar amines in order to deduce an effective oral dosage, based on our findings we conclude that oral preparations with >4 mg DMAA per dose unit should be considered as effective as a bronchodilator. Food supplements that exceed that limit are in fact subject to the Medicines Act, dosages higher than 100-200 mg are expected to cause serious adverse events.
In 2010, a 21-year-old male in New Zealand presented with a cerebral hemorrhage after ingesting 556 mg of methylhexanamine, Health authorities in Hawaii linked cases of liver failure and one death to OxyElite Pro. The death of Claire Squires, a runner who collapsed near the finish-line of the April 2012 London Marathon, has linked to methylhexanamine. The coroner stated that methylhexanamine was probably an important factor during the inquest, a number of sporting authorities and countries have banned or heavily restricted the use of methylhexanamine as a dietary supplement, due to serious concerns about its safety. These countries include the U. S. Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Brazil
