I am curious how quickly you are titrating up on the Topamax. My Dr. specifically stressed that in order to ameliorate the "dopyness" and potentitial cognitive problems that one must titrate up VERY slowly. I have been titrating up 25 mg once a week. The key is also to take the majority of the meds at night. I started at 25mg at night for one week. Then titrated to 25mg in am and in pm. to a total of 50mg for one week. Then again added another 25 mg at night for a total of 75 mg (25 in am and 50mg pm) for one week. Tonight I am adding another 25mg at night to bring me up to 100mg and then I am staying at that level for two weeks. Then I am titrating up to 125 mg for another two weeks and then seeing my dr. I am on Topamax for mood stabilization but also to help counter the weight gain from taking Remeron. In order to lose weight one must be on a dosage of at at least 100 mg. per day. I also take Klonapin .5mg 3x daily.
I hope that helps.
Also, for those who have lost weight on Topamax, at what dosage, did you start seeing the weight loss. I am anxiously awaiting......But trying to be patiently awaiting...
