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?

Answer

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,
