I heard that Garcinia Cambogia increases your seriton levels and Venlafaxine also increases your seriton level. I am wanting to know is it safe to take both of these together.
Hi, C! You're on a very low dose of venlafaxine, but you'd still have a very small, but very serious, risk of a condition known as serotonin syndrome.
When you're taking any medication ~ prescription. OTC, or herbal ~ there's always a possibility of interactions.
Definitely have a chat with your doctor, okay?
Take care! WCV
I'm taking Venlafaxine 150mg and Synthroid 0.5mcg. I tried Garcinia Cambogia for two weeks and was totally wiped out. I could barely get out of bed and was very fatigued, I almost ended up in the hospital. I contacted my Dr. and was told to stop taking it immediately. It took me almost a month to get back to somewhat normal. I learned my lesson to always let your Dr. know before trying these "wonder drugs". By the way I didn't lose any weight.
