*so sorry if I spelled that horribly*
I am thinking of trying it however I hear it can react badly to antidepressants. I am on one of the odd ones that is not an ssri. Does anyone know the correct answer? I have heard it helps but I have also read warnings. I don’t wanna ask my dr seeing how my ed is not a discussion I am willing to have with her.

I remember getting sketchy phone calls about this pill when I was younger

I honestly think its a scam but if anyone thinks otherwise i'd be interested to why

I am on an antidepressant, but it is an SSRI, and it worked great with garcinia Cambodia. Honestly as long as you buy a brand that sells straight gc over 1500 mg per serving it will decrease your appetite. For me it's a miracle pill

I’ve tried coffee for slimming that has it and it’s good for curbing appetite. Probably wouldn’t take a pill version though

I'm bulimic and it has ruined my heart.  Taking this supplement gave me serious heart palpitations and I kept breaking into sweat/having hot flashes. I would  be careful if you have heart issues (or have been restricing/b/ping for many years).

How regularly/how much were you taking before you noticed problems if you don’t mind me asking?

Lot's of weight loss supplements can interact with anti-depressants so I wouldn't be surprised if it had an interaction

Do you have a HR monitor like a FitBit? I’m finding it’s increased my resting HR by almost 20 beats 😅

Garcinia Cambogia did absolutely nothing for me. ECA stacks are far better... IF your heart can take it. If you have problems with strong coffee or energy drinks, then I advise against it.
