topamax, wellbutrin, effexor...

so i am taking:

Topamax 100g
Seroquel 25g
Wellbrutrin 150g
Effexor 75.5g
Lamictal 25g
Nexium 40g

i want to take Xenadrine EFX (ephedrine free). however, im unaware of the risk factors w all the drug interactions involved. i am aware of the risk factors of the individual drugs, but not when they'd be in my system all at once. does anyone have any medical knowledge about these medications and diet pills???? anyone have any suggestions or bad instances w these meds or Xenadrine EFX??? it'd help me out a lot, thanks!

Re: topamax, wellbutrin, effexor...

In your particular case,since you are on many strong(brain chemical altering )meds, your best bet would really be to just check this out thru your pharmacist, do not want to take any chances here with this combo of meds plus something new.this should be checked for any possible intreactions just like you do(thru the pharmacist)whenever you start any new med.some drug interactions can be fatal,so you really DO need to go to the best possible source for this info.i personally wouldn't trust anyone else with this one.just my opinion.better safe than sorry ya know?good luck,FB
