I know someone who is taking phentermine. She has a history of alcohol/drug abuse. (as recent as in the last 6 months) Her BMI is no more than 25 and she isn't fat. She hasn't tried working out. Is this dangerous? Why would a doctor prescribe these to her?? Thank you.
Absolutely not. Even if a BMI was good at measuring need, 25 isn't high enough. Phentermine is similar in action to amphetamines and I would question the wisdom of a doctor who would give them to a known addict, sober or not.
