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.

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 :(
