hmm Is she bipolar? I have never heard it given to people for binge eating and Lexapro is an antipychotic sometimes given for bipolar. My Dr tried to give it to me and I said if I even START to gain weight I REFUSE to take it. Well I took it for 3 days and gained 5lbs. I said NO FREAKING WAY! And that was that. I insisted he try me on Topamax after much research on my own part and so he did. Is she just binging because of the meds or is she bulemic and being treated for that? There are so many actual weight LOSS drugs available that I can't imagine a Dr prescribing Topamax for this specifically, especially when it may not work. I hope she isn't bulemic because that would be a whole other set of problems. Has she been diagnosed with bipolar because that isn't just mood swings and Topamax isn't to help with "moods". If that is the reason the Dr prescribed it then I would say RUN RUN from that Dr and get a second opinion. He obviously has no clue. Just wondering what exactly your daughter has definitely been diagnosed with. Strong meds are nothing to play around with, especially with an ignorant Dr. and OUR health!
