topamax & weight loss

I've been on topamax for a month for migraines and I've experienced some mild symptoms such tighting of the face, delayed thoughts, excessive dry mouth and loss of appetite. I started with 25mg for 2wks and then 50mg after that. I think that I've only lost 1 or 2 lb's. I was on topamax in 2007 and lost 45 lbs and my doctor took me off of it because I lost too much weight and plus I was military and they didn't carry the medicare overseas in Bahrain. Now I have a civilian doctor and I asked to be put back on it and I am getting completely different results. I weight 159 lbs and I am 5'2 and I need to lose at lease 30 lbs for health issues since I have lupus and I stay fatigue all the time. I have chronic migraines and I am finally getting some relief from them. The side effects are not as bad as I thought they would be but I do need to drop down to at least 125 lbs and I was hoping that the Topamax would help me do it safely.  (Nov 28, 2012 | post #353)
