Re: Topamax-bipolar and weight loss?

I am very interested in this issue. I was taking Lexapro 20 mg. for depression and had gained about 35 lbs. My pdoc suggested topamax, and after taking 50 mg. I have noticed a slight decrease in appetite. I think he hopes to ramp up the topamax to 100 - 125 and then be able to reduce the Lexapro to 10 mg. since the overweight depresses me as much as general depression does! Also, my mood is very steady on Topamax which is leading him to think that perhaps I may have some underlying bipolar tendencies as well that haven't seemed severe enough before I realized how good it felt to feel "even" all the time!
