Propranolol, Fat Burners and (Alpha-2 Receptors)

Recently been looking at OXYELITE PRO supplement to find some information on "Alpha-2 Receptors"  noticed that i've been gaining weight in certain area's since taking propranolol.. looked at the information on this oxyelite pro and it states the exact areas im suffering from with the side effects of propranolol, obviously blocking this alpha-2 or making it worse or what not. This supplement claims to banish these effects. I was just wondering wether it was safe to use under propranolol. I know i've made endless threads about Propranolol and other supps but if i went to a doc all they say is to not take anything really.. Could do with a true answer if you understand. Thanks a lot, be looking foward to some advice.
 
Adam.

    I've never heard of this supplement before so i cant help with this although if you cant find any official/researched info about it being safe then you shouldn't use it based on a recommendation from an internet forum.
     
    When I get fat I too gain in the areas that are highlighted in the picture.  The remedy for this is to eat less and/or exercise more...

    LuckyStrike is spot on with his answer.
     
    Just to add, this supplement appears to contain caffeine and other such stimulants. You'll recall many people (myself included) have advised you against using any stimulant based products whilst taking the beta blockers Adum. At the least, they'll counter the effects of the beta blockers, i.e. the positive effects for which they were prescribed. As worst you may get a nasty interaction if you administer these two items at the same time. Not a good idea.

    I think this ties in nicely with your other thread...I know I took the pi!ss in your creatine thread, but seriously (no trolling) I had heart palpitations while using propranolol, I don't want to be a scare monger but maybe they are causing the problems....maybe chat with your doc ?

    yeah the gaining in weight is definately a side effect with the propranolol thats why i was curious if this supplement could help fight that specific sign effect... because i'm carry weight in them areas. I eat fine, and exercise and train hard and it wont shift, due to these alpha 2 reactors...

    Yes but really quite mildly. You can certainly 'overcome' the problem by eating less, or exercising more. I think you're reading too much into this. I was on an alpha/beta blocker at the highest dose advisable for many years. You simply have to match your calories in to your (very slightly) reduced calories out.
