Murph, Please realize that I feel you have helped EVERYONE understand so much more than we could have ever done with our own fumbling around the internet and asking our Doctors. I am very thankful to have you on this board, as a researcher you are so valueable beyond belief. Thanks for answering everyone's questions, I have had a much better understaning about Topamax reading all the posts!

> Thank you so much, you made me feel good. All I want is to tell the truth and hope that I can make you, and other people on this board, just know a little more. Bless you! Murph

> > > Weight loss on topamax is a RANDOM side effect. There are a large host of other side effects which occur at a much higher rate, and some can be devastating. Clinical science is working on the long term ramifications of topamax. Alterations in vision, kidney function and cognitive functions are possible, for the rest of your life. If the media touts this drug as a weight loss remedy, and we all know that people with low self esteem will jump on it regardless of the side effects, is irresposible journalism. Topamax failed FDA approval as a weight loss pharmaceutical, and I have personally reviewed many more cases than I would have liked where topamax has seriously injured people. It is an anticonvulsant, used off label as a migraine remedy, sometimes as an anti-manic, moves people towards depression, and should never be advertised as a weight loss drug. My educated two cents. Hope that helps. Murph
