Instaflex is an over the counter product that is claimed to help with joint health, so as nothing more than a dietary supplement, it hasn't actually been tested for possible interactions with medications and health conditions.

However, since I am also a hypertension and cardiac patient, I can tell you that one of the ingredients in it is Cayenne pepper and it can cause blood pressure elevations in some people.

Learn more hypertension details here.

It can really depend on the person, so I'd suggest checking with your doctor, or pharmacist, before taking it. From what I've found, any of the various pepper extracts can cause blood pressure elevations in some people, so you have to be careful about taking them.

I haven't had a problem with them, but I know several other people that do.

The small amounts that may be in your normal diet don't always have a large effect, because they are minuscule, but the extracts that are used for supplements can be much, much more potent.

What are you current blood pressure readings and what cardiac condition do you have?

Hi justto let you know I stopped taking instaflex. I have cardiomyopathy, and my heart felt like it was skipping a beat now and then and also i felt like i was going to pass out at times. I think it is a good drug, but i guess i just can't take it.

I have been able to maintain a healthy range for my bp for several years......been taking losartan and metoprolol this past year. After taking the instaflex for just 5 days I noticed significant increase in my bp. No other factors could seem to attribute to this increase. Stopped instflex and np back down.

Re: Charlotte (# 5)

I believe that this product put me in the hospital twice. The first time my heart went into supra-ventricular tachycardia (SVT) and a few days later a return to the ER for Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs). My recommendation is"DO NOT TAKE THIS PRODUCT!".

Re: Michael (# 14)

I am in excellent health. I don't take any prescription meds at age 55. But since I play ice hockey I decided to act on an ad I saw for advanced instaflex. I've noticed I've been getting PVC's a lot especially sitting down and I was thinking why? Other than an occasional Claritin I take nothing. Then I googled it and saw your message. How long after you stopped did they go away? Blessings.
