Topamax- week one review



Recommended Posts

About 4 years ago I tried Topamax / Topiramate at the suggestion of a rather random doctor I met.

My experience was that Topamax made me ... clinical term here ... nuts. It made me an anxious, very nervous, sleep-deprived, still-fat girl.

One woman's experience. That's all.

I take topiramate for Migraines and as a mood stabilizer and I've never had issues with Hair loss. I have generilazed anxiety disorder anyway so if it makes me anxious I can't tell

I read the OP's earlier posts just now. It appears that she has not had WLS and is not trying to get WLS. She is trying to lose enough weight to get a Tummy Tuck.< /p>

Thought that might clear up some of the confusion.

I just started taking topamax this past week, I started at 25 mg at bedtime and now I'm at 50 mg but I haven't noticed any difference in appetite yet. :( in also on Wellbutrin 300 mg per day as well

Topamax gave me the worst side effects, super intense heartburn and my hands and feet were tingling and going numb. It worked a little but the side effects were bad for me :(

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
