I like many others have tried so many different meds for my bipolar disorder. I see alot of pros and cons with Topamax that my dr precribed to me yesterday. After many failed attempts or massive weight gain, im so scared I wont tolerate Topamax. Seroquel worked wanders on me i loved it but refused to continue it since ive picked up over 30 lbs recently on it. So should I be scared?
I have never been able to figure out what meds will cause me to gain weight and what won't. Seems a class of meds that I gained 60 pounds on 20 +years ago, now I don't. Just take it slow, and if you find the pounds rolling back on in two months or so, then you won't have been on it long enough to have withdrawal issues. It could work well for you - you won't know until you try. Best wishes - ElizaJane
