Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your query.

So the interaction of Garcinia with other drugs is not well studied and documented.
There are no scientific information information available in this topic.

It is your decision which counts.

But monitor the blood sugar and blood pressure. If it is going hay way following Garcinia then stop it.
