But if you plan to use a diet drug to achieve your goal, hear this: A study reported in the September 1, 2010, New England Journal of Medicine found that overweight patients with cardiac risk factors and /or type 2 diabetes who took the weight-loss drug sibutramine (Meridia) actually increased their risk of heart attack and stroke 16 percent, even when they followed a diet-and-exercise program (Note: Meridia was taken off the market in October 2010.) The likely reason is that sibutramine increases blood pressure and resting pulse rate, both of which increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
It was observed that their was no significance difference in Resting Respiratory Rate, Blood Pressure, Vital Capacity, Maximum Breath Holding Time, Peak Flow Rate and Cardio Vascular Endurance.There was significant difference in Resting Heart Rate and Resting Pulse Rate.
Sibutramine is a norepinephrine and serotonin reuptake inhibitor that induces satiety and is known to be associated with modest increases in blood pressure and resting pulse rates.
For example, every extra 10 beats per minute higher than a normal resting pulse was associated with a 16 percent increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease and a 25 percent greater risk of all-cause death.This is one of the few studies that has looked at changes in heart rate over time, said Dr.
At one point, Allardyce's heart rate reached 160 beats per minute, four times his normal resting pulse.

A study that followed 129,135 women for eight years found those whose resting pulse was more than 76 beats per minute were 26 percent more likely to experience a heart attack or die from coronary heart disease than women whose resting heart rate was 62 beats per minute or less.
Interpretation & conclusions: A combination of different factors i.e., higher resting pulse rate, increased blood pressure and body fat may be responsible for lower PFI at HA.
After combining dog and cat data, it was found that pet owners, as compared to non pet owners, had significantly lower resting pulse rates, lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and exhibited significantly lower reactivity on all three measures following a stressful arithmetic task.
