> Hi, There is a binge-eating study in California USA currently to see if Topamax can possibly be approved for that disorder. I called to ask what medication was being used in this trial and low and behold, it was Topamax. I figured, but was curious. I lost 25 pounds while on Topamax, and the side effects were minimal for me. If you're interested in hearing about my experience, I would be happy to share it with you, if not, I still wish you all the best in getting relief for the bipolar issue as well as an added benefit of weight loss Topamax seems to have on a lot of people :-)

Even after having 3 children...with the depakote and other meds I've gained 30-40 lbs. since March of 2003. Just need to know if anyone else has had any luck with the medicine? I am willing to suffer some side effects to get somewhere with my disorder!

kristen..I was recently prescribed topamax for bi-polar. Im not sure he got that diagnosis correct. im trying to find symptoms to see if they fit me. any way he told me he chose this drug because i am so depressed about my weight. he told me as a side effect i probably would lose. please if you can tell me about how it is for you i would appreciate the insight.. not started the med yet..im kinda afraid.
