Thanks for posting your query.
Oxy elite pro is a fat burner which has been advertised widely and its exact composition and ingredients have not been specified.
Similarly there are no rational drug trials available to test its efficacy, safety and interactions with other drugs.
One of its main components is caffeine which increases the anxiety and produces cardiac side effects in patients of depression.
The FDA does not regulate herbs so the safety, purity and efficacy of these products vary greatly, according to the American Pregnancy Association.

Consumers have little information available to them regarding the quality of the products they use. Government agencies do not guarantee the health and safety of you and your baby when using herbal supplements. In some cases, the use of a combination of herbs can lead to problems with pregnancy, including miscarriage.
So, it is not advisable to take such products during pregnancy.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
