View Full Version : Topamax & weight loss - does it just happen?

I've head Topamax can lead to weight loss, in the past I've found weight loss can either just happen or be the result of reduced appetite - which is it with Topamax? Aka - can I pig out with Topamax and still expect to lose weight? Within some reason of course.

I've taken Topamax since October 2008 and it has not affected my weight. I still have the same appetite. I'm on 100mg 2x/day.

my daughter lost weight for a while seemed like her appetite was decreased but it came back with a vengeance..
My guess is you can or may lose some weight until you become adjusted to the med. and things return to the way they were.

I think I'm experience the coming back with the vengeance with the Vyvanse - which is why I put back on all this weight all of the sudden (my mother - who seems to have become quite obnoxious as she goes through her own "chemical changes" - has taken to saying i look "four months pregnant")
