Wl- pill topiramate aka topamax



Recommended Posts

I took topamax for severe Migraines and stress induced seizures in 2006 and that stuff really helped me lose weight. I mean, I didn't want to eat EVER and the weight just fell right off, but the problem is, at least for me, that when I quit the topamax because I was having a bad interaction with the maxalt my neurologist had also given me(you would of thought he would have known that was a bad combo but whatever), that all that weight came back with a cruel vengeance and some friends. So just be aware of that should you need to wean off of it for whatever reason.

Funny how medications effect everyone differently. I take 200 mg of Topamax twice a day and Maxalt together and haven't had any interaction problems but lost zero weight.

Don't want to hijack this thread but I see a lot of migraineurs. I have chronic mig with and without aura. Tried Topamax three different times but had to discontinue due to side effects ( including kidney stones). what I want to know is how did WLS impact your Migraines? How about the liquid diet?

liquid diet was hell. WLS was fine after liquid stage and getting more food.< /p>
