Hye guys, i really need ur help.

I exercise for an hour everyday. Every 5minutes i will run for 2 minutes like (minute-5, run for 2 minutes) until minute-40. Then, i will do the incline exercise for 10 minutes and briskwalk for 10 minutes.

My questions are will i lose some weight if i continue with this exercise? And is this exercise working for me?

Generally, you need to restrict your calories in order to lose weight-- just exercising won't do it.

I agree, I exercised hard for the longest time but didn't track and restrict my calories, and I didn't understand why, while I was getting more toned, I wasn't seeing a difference in the scale. I didn't start to lose weight until I saw nutritionist and got on a calorie intake plan. If you're working out hard and restricting calories, it's important to make sure that you get enough protein. I tried to get at least 100 g of protein a day while consuming 1500 cal.

I have to agree with gardengranny, the Doc should be the one telling you if you are ok to continue or stop taking a medication. You could end up doing more harm than good.
