No: Garcinia while an Amazon best seller in the weight loss category has had some serious side effects. Mainly that of liver toxicity. There is a case of a liver transplant needed after taking this product in the literature.
I would stay away from it for safety reasons.

On spironolactone 50 mg and atenolol 100 mg for blood pressure , I am trying to do HIIT, I feel like passing out when working out what can I do?

On spironolactone 50 mg and atenolol 100 mg for blood pressure , I am trying to do HIIT, I feel like passing out when working out what can I do?

Passing out: One of the reasons you have a problem working out is that you are on atenolol (A). It works by slowing your heart rate and if you exercise, your pulse may not be able to increase because of A. Ask your physician if you can stop the A safely. If you can, your problem with exercise may be resolved. Good luck. ...Read more

I take atenolol 100 mg  + lisinopril/hctz (20/25) for hypertension.  Is there a betterbeta blocker which will be better for exercise tolerance?

The concern is: whether your blood pressure is controlled. Then experiment with different beta blockers. Individuals seem to have their own exercise tolerance and response to a given beta blocker. Discuss this with your primary health care provider and ask him/her to try a few different ones with you provided your BP remains controlled. ...Read more

Is it less risky to double dose altenolol or miss a dose? I can't recall if i took 100 mg dose of atenolol 6 hrs ago. Should i take a dose now or not?

Skip the dose: It looks like you asked this question awhile ago, so this may not be relevant anymore, but in your case, at 6 hours, i would say to just skip the dose rather than possibly double up on it. I would recommend just checking your BP every hour or two and make sure it's not too high, then resume your normal dosing schedule. If it is too high, call your doctor. ...Read more
