I have a lot of friends that had high blood pressure (you will notice I said had) and used Atkins to lose weight AND get off their BP and Type II diabetes medicines.

I think that the best way to lose weight is to get your portions down, balance your carbs and protein, and keep fats under 10g per meal. If you are doing all that and weight isn't going down, cut back on the portions, but maintain frequent small meals.

I don't see why not really. The only thing is that the meds might lower your metabolism slightly but that shouldn't have much affect.
