Q: Can I take Alli even if I have HBP?

I take medication for my HBP, right now I'm overweight and I was thinking about starting a Diet and Exercise routine and incorporate Alli for added benefit.  Since I read that Alli works with the enzymes in your digestive system I was wondering can I take it even though I have HBP?

Hi PhatChick, (I like your user name!)

 

I've have looked into Alli and according to the manufacturer and studies Alli is safe to take with high blood pressure; however, I recommend being cautious.  If I was in your position I would start with the diet and exercise routine.  If you make a serious committment, make the necessary changes, and after several weeks are not seeing results, then I'd consult your physician about adding Alli.

 

All the best,

Thank you, Lisa

 

I have been on a diet for sometime.  I do eat healthy and walk as a form of exercise but I would like to incorporate Alli since my results are minimum.  I will see my physician tomorrow so I'll ask her if I can go ahead and take it.

 

Thanks Alot
