My cousin is 17 and weighs about 60 kilos. She was wondering if it would be harmful or dangerous if she took the pill (because she thinks she's fat -.-) .. Silly girl

Use her height to determine BMI to see if she falls into one of the categories for BMI that warrants its use.
Any harm/risk from taking duromine has to be compared against physical and mental health issues around being overweight / obese.

Go see a doctor.

You should only take Duromine if you are classified as being obese. If she isn't obese, tell her to go for a run.

Agree. Yes, Duromine can be prescribed to children-teens over 12 years old, BUT in case of life-threatening obesity ONLY. 60 kilos is no way obesity no matter how short she is.
