I to take synthroid for 10 years for my hypothyroid. I'm pretty healthy and really only need to loose 10lbs give or take a lb, so I recently started to loose weight the right way and was doing the low calorie thing and exercising, 3 weeks in and a couple of lbs down I decided to use garcinia cambogia well 2 days later I was feeling exhausted and I mean hypothyroid exhausted, but I didn't think anything of it, then I started getting hungry and couldn't eat enough still not thinking nothing. But by day 4 I was physically unable to keep my eyes open and was walking around with a box of Girl Scout cookies. My husband said "its your thyroid meds"! And I started thinking how could it be? How could I get this low this fast? Then it hit me its the garcinia. Which lead me to here googling the same question to see if my suspicions where correct.
And I see the other responses confirmed what I thought. So I suggest you stay away from it.
Hope this helps!
have bbeen taking levothyroxin for hypothyroidism approximately a year, and I just started taking the garcinia Cambodia a week ago in an attempt to lose some of the weight I've gained. I take the levothyroxin and the garcinia together as soon as I wake up, then the garcinia 2 more times- afternoon and approximately an hour before bedtime. This week I have experienced the worst case of exhaustion/ fatigue I have ever experienced in my life approximately ½ hour- 45 after taking the morning dose. It is so bad that I have to lie down verses sitting to keep from falling over onto the floor. I wasn't sure what the garcinia Cambodia was interacting with until I read this thread.
