A young adult man is despondent that he has been unable to lose weight and keep it off. Now that his weight has crested 350 pounds, he has sought advice from the nurse. He states that obesity runs in his family but that his mother had great success in losing weight with the use of amphetamines in the late 1970s. The nurse should explain to the man that this is not a treatment option because
A)amphetamines have been shown to be largely ineffective in clinical studies.
B)amphetamines have been superseded by more modern lipase inhibitors.
C)amphetamines carry a high risk of dependence and abuse.
D)amphetamines are prohibitively expense and are not covered by most health insurers.

Feedback:
Experts do not recommend using amphetamines because they are controlled substances (Schedule II) with a high potential for abuse and dependence. Amphetamines do not inhibit lipase.
