Topiramate for weight loss?! I take it for migraines! Is it actually supposed to help with weight loss, because I don't notice a difference...

Edit: I looked it up out of curiosity and they do actually use it for weight loss in addition to using it for migraines... how weird that my doctor didn't mention that when she prescribed it to me two weeks ago lol

I took Topiramate 25mg, twice a day for years. It was prescribed for seizures I had. I can't say that it had any impact on my weight loss.

Metformin is a diabetes medication. It evens out or balances your blood sugar. I've seen cases where it was prescribed for pre-diabetics and they lost weight. Doctors aren't exactly sure how it works in relation to weight loss. They suspect that it acts as a mild appetite suppressant. *My husband takes metformin. Since he started taking it, he has GAINED weight.

Topirimate did NOT work for me at all. Gained on it. But it does work for some. Never took metformin.
