Do not waste $$$: No need to waste on garcinia. This is only to make money for the producer. Lipitor (atorvastatin) is useful. No reason to suspect interaction. Why would anybody ever waste $$$ on garcinia? Eat healthy and live longer.

Careful: Small amount of wine is usually tolerated in patients on statin therapy. However since statins could cause problems with the liver, caution is advised especially if on higher dose and/or prior history of liver problems while on statins.
