Obetrol was the brand of amphetamine mixed salts based drugs indicated for treatment of exogenous obesity by the American pharmaceutical company Obetrol Pharmaceuticals. Obetrol was a popular diet pill in America in the 1950s and 1960s.

A formulation of amphetamine mixed salts that included methamphetamine was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on January 19, 1960 under the name Obetrol. Between 1965 and 1973, this formula was offered in 10 mg and 20 mg strength through Obetrol Pharmaceuticals division of an American pharmaceutical company Rexar under the trade name Obetrol. Its indication was for exogenous obesity.

The ready availability of methamphetamine-based medications in the 1960s led to their use and abuse as recreational drugs. Obetrol was the recreational drug of choice for artist Andy Warhol. Obetrol was abused by a character named Chris Fogle in David Foster Wallace’s novel The Pale King. “Obetrolling” or “doubling” were the terms used by the character to refer to tripping on Obetrol, which increased his self-awareness and made him feel alive.
