Hello
Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

No,it will not cause such problem.
You can take Garcinia Cambogia along with medicines you are already taking like Ramipril,Bystolic and Atorvastatin.
Common side effects of Garcinia are nausea and headache and that occurs if taken in large amount and it rarely occurs.Liver toxicity may also occur in very high doses.
There is no interaction with antihypertensives and hypolipidimic drugs,so you can take all drugs easily.

Wish you for good health.

Hope i have answered your query.
Further queries are most welcome.

Hi Doctor- Thanks so much for a quick reply. Are you aware of the maximum daily allowances (dosages) for this product? I bought one that is 60% HCA and 1560 mg with potassium (187 mg) component. They recommend two tablets before each meal 3 times a day but i thought i read somewhere a maximum of 3000 mg should be consumed daily but i cant find that reference. Any thoughts ?
