This is Dr. David

alternative agents like garcinia cambogia to help you loose weight has not been well studied with conventional medications like Buspar or Wellbutrin for anxiety.

most likely the combination will be fine and not cause any interactions

you should let your doctor know who is prescribing you the buspar that you are wanting to take garcinia for weight loss.

you might benefit from consult with a dietician and exercise therapist to help you set up an exercise program as well to loose weight.

let me know if you have other questions.

There is absolutely no evidence that garcinia helps at all

It is not proven beneficial for weight loss

I would avoid it for this reason and unpredicatble interactions with your other meds
