2 doctors agree

In brief: No proof of safety

Dietary supplements are marketed by manufacturers w/o any requirement by fda or other 3rd party to prove safety and/or effectiveness prior to marketing.
In other words, companies are allowed to say whatever they want to convince you to buy their products. Check out 2 recent news articles: http://goo.Gl/bbmdcw (usa today) & http://goo.Gl/uilodl (fda via nbc) re lack of oversight & contamination.

I see where you're going here, and mostly agree. However, neither of your links is specifically about Garcinia. The main problem for this individual is that there are no studies testing safety of Garcinia with Seroquel or other pharmaceuticals. There actually are studies of Garcinia on its own, though.
