Inventor(s): Molloy; Bryan B. (North Salem, IN), Schmiegel; Klaus K. (Indianapolis, IN)
Assignee: Eli Lilly and Company (Indianapolis, IN)
Application Number:06/846,448
Patent Claims: 1. A method of treating animals suffering from an appetite disorder comprising administering to said animal an effective amount of a compound of the formula ##STR7## wherein each R' is independently hydrogen or methyl; wherein R is naphthyl or ##STR8## wherein R" and R"' are halo, trifluoromethyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.3 alkyloxy or C.sub.3 -C.sub.4 alkenyl; and

wherein n and m are 0, 1 or 2; and acid addition salts thereof formed with pharmaceutically-acceptable acids.

2. A method according to claim 1 employing N-methyl-3-(p-trifluoromethylphenoxy)-3-phenylpropylamine or a pharmaceutically-acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

3. The method of claim 2 employing N-methyl-3-(p-trifluoromethylphenoxy)-3-phenylpropylamine hydrochloride.

4. A method of blocking the uptake of monoamines by brain neurons in animals comprising administering to said animal a monoamine blocking amount of a compound of the formula ##STR9## wherein each R' is independently hydrogen or methyl; wherein R is naphthyl or ##STR10## wherein R" and R"' are halo, trifluoromethyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.3 alkyloxy or C.sub.3 -C.sub.4 alkenyl; and

wherein n and m are 0, 1 or 2; and acid addition salts thereof formed with pharmaceutically-acceptable acids.

5. A method according to claim 4 wherein the monoamine to be blocked is serotonin.

6. A method according to claim 5 employing N-methyl-3-(p-trifluoromethylphenoxy)-3-phenylpropylamine or a pharmaceutically-acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

7. The method of claim 6 employing N-methyl-3-(p-trifluoromethylphenoxy)-3-phenylpropylamine hydrochloride.

8. The method of claim 5 employing N-methyl-3-(o-methylphenoxy)-3-phenylpropylamine or a pharmaceutically-acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

9. The method of claim 5 employing N-methyl-3-(o-methylphenoxy)-3-phenylpropylamine hydrochloride.
