As an aortic valve patient myself, I think diet pills would be a very bad idea.  Ask your cardiologist, but be prepared for the answer.  I can't imagine that any cardiologist would be happy about an aortic stenosis patient taking diet pills.  Losing weight if they were obese, yes.  Taking speed, no.
