Is There A Diet Pill That You Can Take If You Have High Blood Pressure?

Answer

Hi Lynda,

I do not recommend diet pills - whether you have high blood pressure or not.

Many weight loss supplements contain "undeclared pharmaceutical ingredients", frequently in levels exceeding FDA recommendations. These ingredients include drugs not approved in the U.S. These substances impact blood pressure and anti-seizure medications, diuretics, along with drugs linked to suicide, depression, and cancer.

All the best,
