1. The effects produced by discontinuation of long-term treatment with fencamfamine (FCF) were evaluated recording behavioral and body weight changes.2. 48 hr after withdrawal of FCF rats shelved a significant decrease in exploratory behavior when compared to saline-treated ones.3. Discontinuation of treatment with FCF resulted in a significant increase in body weight on days of drug withdrawal.4. These results suggest that FCF caused signs of withdrawal similar to other psychostimulant drugs.
