I was wondering if anyone here has taken a diet pill (like trimspa or lipovarin) with their seizure med. I am currently on depakote and am looking into getting lipovarin, but i'm just wondering if it's generally considered safe to take these types of pills while on a seizure med.
I am currently on Lamictal for my epilepsy. I talked to my neurologist about taking diet pills and he strongly discouraged me from taking them. Apparently a lot of diet pills contain caffeine and caffeine is a cerberal stimulant that can cause people with epilepsy to have seizures. I decided not to take the risk and lost weight the old fashioned way (healthy eating and excerise)
