i have been on seroquel ( an antipsychotic ) and neurontin ( a mood stabilizer ) for several years after a diagnosis of bipolar...and have gained 60 lbs.

i would like to add topamax to my med. regimen to counter the propensity of both my current meds. to cause increases in weight.

i have heard from both satisfied and disgruntled posters who have or had tried this approach to weight management ... but, many who have found success and shed even a couple pounds have simultaneously quit the offending ( weight gain inducing ) med. ( ie. lithium, depakote or an antipsychotic ) ... have any remained on their medication while adding/taking topamax and also lost the weight? i have found stabilization with my current regimen, including my antipsychotic, and don't have the option of dropping either. please help.

may i also find success at losing weight while adding topamax to my current meds.?
