Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
Forskolin is Plectranthus barbatus, a perennial herb in a large genus of mints. It has multiple sites of action.
For weight reduction and Obesity disorder, the dose recommended is 250 mg of a 10% Forskolin extract twice daily for 12 weeks.
Interactions with other drugs you are using cannot be commented as it is not well documented.
Forskolin should be avoided in patients with polycystic kidney disease.
Hope the information provided is clear.
Wish you good health.
