> I am up to 200 mg at 25 mg a week and still no signs of relief of weight loss yet from the Topomax. I went from 220 to 255 in 2 months with the med change just like everyone else. The 175 to 220 was from the previous med change. My god when will the Topomax kick in? Please respond. I am trying to keep my hopes up, the meds are keeping the depression at bay but I don't know for how long if there is no hope from the Topomax. You all know how I am feeling.

Are there other meds that are causing weight gain?
I know that the antidepresants that I was on all were accompanied with the warnings that they would cause weight gain... and they did...
oh how they did...
hence the slow weight loss at the beginning...
also I would be concerned about the fast increase timetable...
my neurologist is adamant about the slower rate of increase...
no faster than two week increments and he tells people not to increase at that rate if they feel they are not ready...
that could be causing the problem...
I also have to mention that I hit a plateau when there was no weight loss... then one day discovered that it had started again...
at the moment I am at such a plateau again...
and hope it will start again... would like to lose another ten pounds... no more I think...
hang in there...
check the other meds and see if they are still weight gainers...
it may be that the topomax and they are fighting each other...
could they be changed with others that do not cause gain???
just a thought...
