Thanks for your query.

Micardis contains Telmisartan which is usually given to people with borderline Hypertension.

I would consider no harm in taking above mentioned weight loss preparations.The contents do not have any effect on the medication or the blood pressure.

But care has to be taken to avoid abnormal cholesterol which usually gets shown in the blood after weight reduction medications, hence I suggest you to get the Lipid profile done every 6 months ones.If there is any derangement in the Lipid profile then stopping the medication would be essential.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
