Not a good idea: Usually weight loss supplements contain ingredients that raise your blood pressure. Vit B12 should be ok.

Ask your doc: Do not take any medications without discussing it with the doctor who is prescribing you BP meds. B12 shots are not useful, unless you have deficiency. Losing weight through diet and exercise would help with your BP control.
