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.
