Thanks for the query.

You mentioned that you son is having difficulty in memory, has involuntary movements, cries a lot and he is overweight.

He can take Topamax, Lasix and Oxyelite pro. There are no known interaction between them, it can be taken together.

However I could not find the constitution tablet Recreate, please let me know what it contains so that I can help you with it.

I would like to add here since he is taking Lasix and you have mentioned that he tends to vomit frequently, you will need to be on a regular follow up with your doctor to keep a check on his sodium levels once a month.

I hope I have answered your query, I am awaiting your reply on the contents of tablet Recreate.

I wish your son good health.

Follow-up: Memory loss, shaking, sweating. Is it okay to take Topamax, Lasix, Recreate and OxyElite Pro? 9 hours later
Oxyelite is made by the same company as UPS Recreate. The instructions state clearly that neither should be taken by anyone under the age of eighteen and any adverse effects should be reported immediately to a doctor. Topamax can be prescribed as an OFF LABEL drug at the doctors discretion but surely if my son was having such bad side effects the doctor should have taken him off the medication
(Topamax that is) instead he simply said it was not the medication it was something else wrong with my son.
Please bare in mind this doctor was also treating my son with acupuncture as a weight loss programe so why all the medication. (What about Lasix)?
Please confirm if it is okay to take Oxyelite and Recreate at the age of 13 even though the label WARNS against anyone under the age of 18 taking it.
Also if you ought to continue taking Topamax as a weight loss drug even though you are having severe side effects? Sorry this sounds somewhat unethical to me!
Yours, XXXXXXX Zamba

Thanks for replying.

Topamax contains Topiramate which is primarily used to treat seizure and migraine but it is also used to treat obesity, it has a quality to reduce appetite to a certain extent.
If the memory problems and confusion has come after starting this drug then it has to be stopped immediately as it is known to cause this adverse effect.

Lasix is a diuretic. It is used as anti hypertensive, it also reduces free water from the body. It should not be used as a Oxyelite Pro is a very popular weight loss supplement. It contains extracts from various plants, roots and vegetables. They claim that it has no side effects but if they have mentioned in the packaging that it should be taken only by 18 years and older then please do not give it to your child.

I must add here that your doctor is advising a rather unconventional method to treat weight loss, please take a second opinion from another doctor.

I hope I have answered your query, if you have no further queries please accept my answer.

I wish you good health.
