Question Questions???

I am am a male and just turned 20. I was also recently diagnosed with epilepsy. I am on topamax. I was wondering if anyone knows if it is okay to take dietary supplements such as Hydroxicut or Xenadrine, while on Topamax or will it have an adverse reaction with the medicine. Or is it bad for people with epilepsy to take those dietary supplements in general, because my neurologist will not give me a straight answer when it comes to anything. Thanks.

I just recently went off Topamax and I lost a lot of weight while on it. I don't know if this is any good but what I had was Carnation Instant Breakfast drink. It really cut my eating and I was basically down to a little bit of dinner only. This drink has a lot of vitamins and such I figured it was better than nothing at all.
