Our expert says:
Because of your mitral valve incompetency and all the medications you take, I would urge you to discuss this matter with your pharmacist to see if there will be any interactions with the Ciplatrim and your medications. I cannot find some of them in my copy of MIMS to check for your. I would also recommend that you see a clinical dietitian for an assessment to see what type of slimming diet you need to use. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area.
Because you have special needs it is better to obtain these assessments to ensure that anything you do (taking a new slimming pill or changing your slimming diet) will not affect your heart.
