Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

There are many pills,supplements etc available through internet which claim to help in weight loss.Their effect is doubtful.Since you have been taking the epileptic medications personally I would not advise you to go for any such products.

Kindly avoid taking any supplement without Medical supervision.It is better to take it under your treating Physician's guidance so that he is aware of what you are taking and if there are any issues they can be tackled accordingly.

Take care!
