Q: What diet pill can I take if I have high blood pressure?

I have high blood pressure I want to lose weight but I am taking Atenolol and Triamterene

 Is CLA, Fish Oil and Flaxseed oil going to help with weight loss or not? What kind of diet pill will help me?

Dear Boobi - I'm not sure about what diet pill you should consider.  But you really should speak to your doctor to make certain it is safe for you to consider this.

 

In the meantime, you may want to read out Lifestyle Changes section - specifically the material on the DASH Diet.

 

All the best, sue

NONE!  ALL DIET PILLS/DRINKS THAT CONTAIN NIACIN ARE BAD FOR HEART AS WELL AS TENTERMINE (SP).  I JUST GOT OUT OF ER BECAUSE I WAS DRINKING SPARK WHICH IS MY FAVORITE DRINK BUT I DID NOT KNOW THAT MY BLOOD PRESSURE WAS SO HIGH.  IT ALMOST MADE ME HAVE A HEART ATTACK.  I AM 42 YR OLD AND FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY.  SO, FOR NOW, I AM GOING TO CONTINUE TO WORK OUT AT LOCAL GYM AND WATCH WHAT I EAT.  NO MORE SUPPLEMENTS OR DRINKS FOR ME.
