I was put on Topamax 11 days ago to help with binge urges. After a week I went from 25mg to 50 mg. The side effects have been awful (word recall, train of thought, depressed, tired, headache, cravings still high) and it has not reduced bingeing at all. I've also gained 5 lbs!!! For someone with a history of eating issues, this is freaking me out!!! I'm wondering if I need to titrate down at all or if I can just stop taking it? I only took 25mg yesterday, I just could not force myself to take the night dose of 25. Please help! Has anyone else gained on this stupid drug???
