If they cause your heart to beat faster, stop taking them. They might be o.k. for some persons, but not for you. If you want to loose weight just start eating a lot of fresh raw vegetables, more fresh raw fruits and lest meat and processed carbohydrates.

I am 21 5 4, 235. I understand I am overweight, but I have been heavier without breathing problems. I started working out and I tried a diet pill call oxyelite. I took one pill and ever since that day I have been having trouble breathing. I went to the dr and did not tell him about the pill. However, they checked my heart and said I was fine. Although he said I didn t have asthma, he gave me an enhaler. The breathing will get worst with excersize. So I stopped working out and It got better. In fact, it went away. The moment I started working out again the breathing problem resurface. I havent worked out in 4 days and it is still here. It is a tighteness in my chest and my throat feels filled. I can t complete yawn. When I was working out about three weeks ago, my heart felt tightness but that no longer occurs.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
