Amphetamine and Metabolic Rate

	I am looking for some references regarding the effects of  
different metabolic rates on animals response to amphetamine. I am looking  
for both interspecific references, and pharmacological references  
discussing amphetamine response as a function of metabolic rate. 
	I am trying to scale an amphetamine dosage in the literature from  
mice to rats (for further study), and want to take metabolic rate into  
account in a precise way. Since I am unsure on the pharmacological  
relation I cannot predict exactly how to scale the dosage, nor am I sure  
if there are baseline differences in response based on basal metabolic  
rate (such the interspecific difference between mice and rats).
	Thanks.
