“Alcohol and topiramate are synergistic. When combined, the effect of either or both drugs is enhanced.

The circumstances Tagbo Umeikes’ death sparked controversy Through out the Internet and The Physical World. New details have emerged as to why Tagbo Umeike reportedly died after allegedly getting drunk at his own birthday attended by Nigerian popstar,Davido.
Sources however blamed Davido for watching the deceased as he drank himself until he passed out.
“After he passed out, I think…I don’t know what happened…the CCTV showed that Davido was asking him to come into his car but I think he (Tagbo) didn’t want to enter into Davido’s car, then they forced him into his own car…then there was this blackout. Now they don’t want to tell us how he got to the hospital.
That is the question. How did he get to the hospital? Because the police met his car and his body in the hospital with no one” – the eyewitness added.
