Question: Hi, I am taking 40 mg of citalopram. Can I take garcinia cambogia? If not, is there another product I can take to help with weight loss?

Brief Answer:
Better keep a hypocaloric diet

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

There is not a certain evidence of certain effects and interactions between garcina cambogia and citalopram. Theorically they can't be used together because Cambodia may increase serotonin levels.

I think you better try a hypocaloric diet or a Keto diet since all supplements have their own side effects and are not certain evidences that really work in weight loss.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
