If the Phedra cut product that you intend using contains epinephrine, ephedra or synephrine, or bitter orange extract and/or caffeine or guarana check the label), then it is contraindicated for patients with high bp. Discuss this problem with the dr who is treating your hypertension and ask him/her to prescribe a product like Xenical instead which should not interfere with your bp or your bp medications. Xenical. Xenical has to be prescribed by a dr. Xenical stops you from absorbing fat from the foods you eat so this automatically lowers your energy intake (each gram of fat you don't eat, saves you 37 kJ!). You should use Xenical with a very-low-fat diet to get the best results. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Food as medicine' and 'Hypertension' and read about the DASH Diet which was developed in the USA to lower bp. This diet is very low in fat and sodium which will respectively assist with weightloss and lower your bp. Exercise such as going for brisk walks would help for the weightloss, but please do Not embark on any exercise programme without first consulting the dr who is treating your hypertension.
