You are right. Patients who have an overactive thyroid should not use phentermine as it could lead to overstimulation of thyroid. Not only this, phentermine should also not be taken by any woman who is pregnant, planning to become pregnant or is breast feeding as it can harm the baby. You should discuss this with your physician.
