Garcinia Cambogia: called the "Holy Grail" of "natural" weight loss supplements does not cause green stools but CAN CAUSE DIARRHEA. It's "safe" to take with Lamictal and Abilify (aripiprazole) but the question you should be asking is if its effective!!!!! The scientific evidence is lacking! Hope this helps! Happy New Year Dr Z
