English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From methamphetamine, apparently by analogy with amphetamines.

Noun[edit]

methamphetamines (plural only)

  1. Methamphetamine.

Usage notes[edit]

  • Since the term methamphetamine denotes a specific compound (one of the amphetamines), the term methamphetamines may be considered meaningless; nonetheless, it is in wide use as a synonym for methamphetamine, though less so in technical literature.
