Is it safe to continue my dose of levothyroxine and begin taking Garcinia Cambogia to lose weight?

In brief: It is probably safe

...but it may not be very effective.
Garcinia cambogia is a tropical fruit, the Malabar tamarind. It is touted to block fat metabolism and may naturally raise serotonin making you feel less hungry. I doubt it has any special negative effects in those taking thyroid supplements. But it's actual weight loss results aren't impressive. I would probably save my money. Good wishes:)
