Hi and thanks for posting.
There's limited data on drug interactions between garcinia and other medications. There are case reports of serious drug interactions, some with diabetes drugs, in one case resulting in fatal liver damage, another resulting in serious muscle injury.
I'd be cautious knowing that the potential for negative drug-drug interactions could raise the risk of toxicity or loss of effectiveness of your HIV medication.
