See a neurologist: I wish there was an easy yes/no answer to this. APS makes you prone to clots and catastrophic APS can cause multi-organ failure. Unfortunately phentermine is a stimulant that can cause blood vessel narrowing. I would make this decision in conjunction with an endocrinologist and neurologist.
