My doctor prescribed me 50 mg of topiramate for weight loss, one tablet in the morning and two tablets at bedtime. Anyone have any experience with Topamax for weight loss and if so how long till I notice results. I have been exercising a little and cutting out all soda, even diet.

I took Topamax for well over a year and I lost a lot of weight. Unfortunately, when the dose was increased, I started to gain weight. Does anyone know if you can lose weight with Topamax a second time?
