How is Topamax as a bipolar medication? I was on another forum and to be fair lets just say it was debatable as a treatment option.

it,s an off label use for some.. but not sure how effective it would be alone.

I took it for a bit for migraines.. it helps with weight lose too.. but i found it also causes acne

I'm bipolar and possibly ADHD and the topamax works great as a mood stabilizer for me. Makes me really stupid though, so beware.
OH yeah, true about the acne too. I have it all over my face. I also lost 20 pounds on it and I'm still losing and not even on purpose which is ok because I needed to lose it.
