See what questions
a doctor would ask.
A 46 year old woman pleaded guilty to selling prescribed diet pills to four nurses. She faces up to five years for 3 charges relating to the crime. She will also have assets seized. The woman would obtain prescriptions from a 71 year old doctor for up to 500 diet pills each time she saw him. The doctor was also writing unlawful prescriptions for the painkiller Oxycontin and a diet drug called Phentermine. The osteopathic physician has since submitted his license. A pharmacist was also involved in the scandal and charged accordingly.
