Olive Leaf Extract

Hello,

I am currently on two kinds of blood pressure medicine.  Lisinopril & Diltiazem.  Recently I started taking Olive Leaf Extract two times a day for the reputed health benefits it offers.  Come to find out this herb is also an antihypertensive.  Snapshot guess as to whether this is ok?

Sounds like the evidence behind it is pretty unstable at this point.  Websites that tout olive leaf exrtract are doing so without any sort-of good scientific data.
