Dear Stroke Patient
It is vital that you do NOT use any slimming pills (neither pharmaceutical or over-the-counter slimming pills), unless they are prescribed by a medical doctor. Because you have had a stroke, I would even like to urge you to discuss weightloss tablets with a medical specialist. The dr will have to examine you thoroughly and then decide if you can or cannot take slimming medications. Some studies have indicated that slimming pills containing sibutramine can increase the risk of stroke. Rather be safe than sorry.
So please consult your doctor or specialist who treated you after the stroke before you take any slimming pills of any kind.
Take great care
