I'm having trouble losing weight, and a magazine said this can end your weight loss problems. I think it's my thyroid. D:
So is it safe? I don't have a doctor's appointment for like, another 2 months or I'd just ask them. Plus my doctor says it's okay to take things that makes my medicine not work, so I don't really trust him.
Before you ask, I'm eating 1850 calories a day, an I'm exercising regularly. Still no weight loss.
Try reading all the responses from people on Levothyroxine who have taken Garcinia Cambogia. I would say don't take it. Increase your water intake to 8-10 8 oz glasses daily, weight training if not already doing that (will boost your metabolic rate, along with exercising) and eat 5-6 x/day - small portions. Good luck.

It's probably okay to take because Garcinia Cambogia doesn't seem to be very significant. I tried this stuff myself and it didn't help at all. It was a waste of my money. I was also on levothyroxine and many other drugs and it didn't interfere with anything. If the problem was our thyroids, the levothyroxine is making up for what our thyroids lack and our weight should be normal after dieting. I say go ahead, but don't spend much money on it and don't count on it. You're already counting your calories and exercising and that's what counts. Now I'm off to exercise myself, so I wish you well.
