Has anyone taken Topamax for weight loss? It's prescribed for migraines, from what i've read, but the weight loss that people are experienceing is amazing. I've gained close to 40 lbs and still gaining. the docs have no idea why, and neither do i
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.
