In brief: In moderation..

There are many types of green teas andt in general ok to use in moderation.
Unfortunately, there are not many research studies to identify the adverse effects, especially in combintation with other meds. So, if you are using any otc supplements, please inform your doc so that he/she can assess and provide best treatment/meds for you if needed..Good luck.

In brief: Yes in small amounts

Green tea supplements are safe to consume but they do contain caffeine, so they should not be taken by people with high blood pressure, heart conditions or in excessive amounts.
