Anyone had good results from topamax? ??
I took Topamax for a very short period of time, yet I must say that I was never hungry, I also didn't need to lose any weight at that time, so it was a bit scary for me. Weight loss is one of the side effects of Topamax, the weight may just melt right off of you, but be careful to eat a healthy diet while on this stuff, it's tempting to eat only empty calories, but your body needs nutrition, especially when losing weight!
Best wishes to you and healthy weight loss,
Hi danilea and welcome,
If your Dr prescribed Topamax as a mood stabilizer, did you also discuss the idea of its potential as a weight loss medication? If your Dr doesn't think you have weight to lose and/or weight loss might not be healthy for you, the prescription might not have been written that way. It is helpful for weight loss with a certain number of people, but as Macintosh said this must also be in combination with healthy eating, not junk. It's not a magic bullet. Good luck to you.
