Question: Can i take garcinia cambogia while taking paxil and synthroid?


I've suffered from depression and generalized anxiety most of my life never understanding what was wrong with me.! 10 years ago an internist doctor prescribed -Effexor-. It helped a little, not much

Two years ago after a -Parathyroid surgery- and ovary surgery, started menopause.

Different doctors gave me medications, didn't know they all were for depression

It's a miracle that I'm still alive -literally-. Currently taking Paxil and Synthroid. Can I start taking Garcinia Cambogia and Royal Jelly without drug interaction? I put on about 40 lb. in the 2 years of "Literally Hell that I went through.

Even with medication, still struggling with anxiety and depression.!

Thank you for all your help!!!.- Eloise

Hi Eloise- I share similar symptoms with you regarding anxiety. Agreed-Menopause is hell. look up on WEB MD your thyroid med -necessary of course for your condition- just to inform yourself fully about this particular drug. Better informed helps you make better choices like -> This From Web MD: "Garcinia is POSSIBLY SAFE for most people when ->used for 12 weeks or less Long-term safety is unknown.->"Garcinia can cause nausea, digestive tract discomfort, and headache."(!) I have found out I am very sensitive to most supplements except B vitamins. IF your depression continues-tell your Doc-adding another may help. Perhaps Thyroid condition also causes depression a double whammy for you. I take Proxac an-SSRI-My Doc just started me on that one after years of seeing me I had to gain her trust I guess-along with long term low dose [50 mg] Elavil-a tricyclic, and low dose of diazapam !only 7.5 mg a day! it is very important to keep diazepam BELOW ten mg per day to avoid addiction[valium]
