Is It Safe To Take The Supplement Oxy Prolite With Other Medicines?

I am considering taking the supplement Oxy Pro Lite. I am currently on some prescription meds though. I want to make sure that it would be safe to take. My other meds are fluoxetine, atenolol, chlorthalidone, & potassium pills. I also usually take tylenol pm or ibuprofen pm before bed time.

Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
Oxyelite Pro is a fat-burning pill that is used by dieters to lose weight.
It has six active ingredients, which include:Caffeine,Bacopa monnieri,Bauhinia purpurea,Rauwolfia, Cirsium oligophyllum,Geranium.
Antidepressants and drugs containing amphetamine should be avoided while using Oxelite as these can interact poorly with stimulant drugs.
Fluoxetine is an antidepressant.
You are taking atenolol, chlorthalidone, & potassium pills, presumably for hypertension.Oxyelite Pro should be avoided if you have pre-existing medical condition like high or low blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmia.
Due to the stimulating nature of the drug, Oxyelite can increase the patient's risk of a heart attack.
I feel it won't be safe for you to take Oxy Pro Lite with above pre-existing medical conditions and antidepressant drugs.
You may opt for some other method of losing weight and energy-boosting.
