Re: Topamax-bipolar and weight loss?

I have been on topamax for 2years now, and always in conjuction with an antidepressant. Originally I was just taking antidepressants prior to 2years ago when I started seeing a different psychiatrist. While taking just antidepressants my weight ballooned. When I started taking both 100mg of topamax as well as my antidepressant, effexor, my weight stabilized at the ballooned weight, but I never seemed able to lose weight. Two years after seeing my current psychiatrist I was able to come off of the antidepressant, and my weight loss was quite dramatic. I lost 27 pounds, with exercise, in 2.5 months. I still don't know if it was because the antidepressant just made me feel sluggish, or if the topamax really reduces my appetite, but I do eat less.
