    I am on lisinopril for BP and orlistat and gp didn't think there was a prob.

    The orlistat can only help the BP in the long run.

    I'm on Amias, probably cos i'm overweight. BP is gradually going down though, maybe a combination of losing weight and tabs. Also on tabs for Cholestoral cos I have to keep mine really low cos I'm diabetic (again probably cos of weight)!!! Tabs all the way... yay hay!!! But feel the best I've felt in years!!! Three dress sizes smaller (still another couple to go)! Good luck! x

    Hi, i'm on orlistat, seems to be working ok, have lost 1st 6lb, been on it since January. Doc put me on them as i'm now diabetic, fat, blood presure up, cholestrol up. Only one problem, the potty department, cant eat anything fatty. Any tips on how to lose more weight. Have started exercise classes but as I am disabled cannot do much.

    Hi all,

    I have been on four different blood pressure tablets for two years.

    since i have been on the blueys last september i have lost 6 stone so i don't think medication will hurt you.
