... Well, need come off of Topamax. I became extremely depressed with this medication. I am now cutting back.

... Oh wow, sorry to hear that. Honestly, I never heard about weight GAIN with Topamax, but I guess side effects differ from person to person. Ten pounds is an incredible amount to gain in one week!

... Depression is documented; but weight gain? That sounds very odd. It is even used off lable for weight loss. Thats a shocker to hear your problem with that. Were they sure it wasn't any issue of the body that may have caused it? In most cases weight loss is gradual on Topa. When I was on Depakote it was noticed more quickly (the weight gain). Best of luck. (3 replies)
