Hello nicolebee. Phentermine is very much like an amphetamine and can cause a person to become addicted or dependent on. If taken as prescribed, for its done so for short periods of time, a few weeks, then its recommened not to take it for some time.That avoids the chances of becoming dependent on the drug as well as having any of the possible side effects that are common to taking this drug. There are risks to taking this drug, so its suggested you follow your doctors directions. Best wishes and good health to you,pledge
