Is it safe to take diet pills when you're on topamax, wellbutrin, advair, testosterone gel, xanax, (alprazolam) klonopin?

Won't advise it: You are already on too many mood modifying medications and no one knows what the outcome will be when adding a stimulant (most diet pills are). Besides diet pills rarely if ever work for long unless one changes eating and living habits. ...Read more
