Topamax & weight Loss?

Prescribing of Topamax for weight loss is an "Off Label" use, so there is no recommended dose details. So doctors would probably start low and go up to 400mg, (which is the maximum dose used even for other conditions), until desired result is achieved, without side effects.

I used topomax for pain management. I lost 14 lbs. in about three weeks from then on I gained about twenty. everybody is different and you may have better luck. The the med has nasty side effects. I couldn't find my words. Carbonated drinks tasted flat. Confusion
Good Luck with your decision on taking it.

I have been on it about 2 months now and have lost about 20 pounds so far. Neither my psych or family doctor would put me on the traditonal weight loss meds due to drug abuse history but with losing this much so fast, i'm not complaining. I just hope that i can keep it off. I do have to force myself to remember to eat by leaving notes or I would forget because i am just not hungry.
