I am bipolar (hypomanic) and took Celexa and Depakote (I found Neurontin to be a worthless mood stabilizer). I gained 50 pounds in a year on Depakote, and that only made my depression worse. I also have migraines, so my doctor switched me from Depakote to Topomax and added Cymbalta. Now I feel great, and I have lost all the weight I gained--it took about 7 months. I feel better than I ever have. The weight loss was just a welcome side effect of the Topomax. We never even discussed using it as a weight-loss drug. I also think going off the Depakote contributed to the weight loss.
