Hello gilleon;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Oxyelite pro is a preparation containing half part as herbal medicines and half as chemical formulation.It is used as a fat burner by over weight people.But the problem is there is no documented evidence or study regarding the drug interaction between other medicines and oxyelite pro and you are suffering from pulmonary embolism and are on warfarin which is a serious medicine so better to avoid the use of oxyelite pro.Just in case your treating doctor recommends the use of any such formulation then may be you can take it but still better avoid it and consult your doctor for some other way or medicine to reduce the weight and fat.
