Phentermine Use During First and Second Trimesters Associated with Fetal Stroke.
Cureus. 2019 Nov 16; 11(11):e6170.C

Abstract

Phentermine is a sympathomimetic amine used for the short-term weight loss that has been associated with ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes in adults. The effects of this medication on a developing fetus are not well studied. We present the case of a woman who was taking phentermine during the first two trimesters of pregnancy and subsequently delivered a child with bilateral porencephalic cysts likely due to a prenatal stroke.
