I have some excess fat around my abdominals. Are there any other risks I have to worry about ?

Hello, I have a few questions I d like to ask concerning Adapexin-P. I weight about 150, 5 8, young, and fairly muscular . I have high blood pressure (usually between 130/90 and 155/110) and I am on a medication for it. I am also on Omeprazole for my hiatal hernia . With that being said, is it okay for me to take Adapexin-P? I ve heard that it has caffeine in it, which is bad for my blood pressure. Are there any other risks I have to worry about ? I realize I am not overweight and probably don t need to take these pills , but I ll be taking a quarter (possibly half) of the recommended dosage. My reasoning for this is I have some excess fat around my abdominals. I ve tried running and eating a better diet is difficult for me. Thank you for the assistance.

If you are talking about your weight in 150 pounds then it is around 67kgs and the ideal weight of a person at height of 5'8" is 60-76 kgs so you are with in normal limits.Adapexin-P is a medicine containing Phenylethylamine which is a appetite suppressing drug and it reduces hunger and it is not advisable for you as you have hiatus hernia;Blood pressure so please avoid it.As for the little abdominal fat you can do abdominal crunches and abdominal exercises and it will reduce so start exercises and you should be fine.Do not use Adapexin-P.
