Stimulants & Suppl.: Check with your prescriber before adding any supplements. Your concern is valid as a lot of supplements for weight loss contain stimulant properties that can increase heart rate and potentially blood pressure and cause side effects. These are not easy to find. If you are set on supplementing and your doctor is not helpful, look for a Dr. specializing in naturopathic medicine. Good luck!

Recent research suggests use of Glucomannan Root, a highly dense fiber can help with feelings of fullness if used in reasonable doses. Also, studies suggest adding medium change fat found in coconut oil help reduce desire for food. So this is a good question, that should be considered with a professional.
