I'm on Topamax for weight loss. I've been on it since March 1, 2009 and, to date, I have lost 85 pounds. I am hoping to lose another 20-25 pounds. I take 200 mg of Topamax per day (100 mg in AM and 100 mg in PM). My weight loss was the most rapid in the first 3-4 months and has slowed dramatically over the past 8 weeks, but I have not gained any weight, so I am quite satisfied with the results thus far. I would encourage you to talk to your doctor.
