Question About Topamax 25mg & Weight Loss

I started taking Topamax 25 mg at bedtime. Started in mid October. In December I noticed a drop in wieght around 8lbs. I was at a good weight before. Should I expect more weight loss? I hope not.

Answer

Olivia, In the clinical trials of Topamax, people who experienced weight loss as a side effect lost an average of 2.3% of their starting weight. Nobody can predict if the weight loss you've experienced will continue. If you're losing enough weight that you're underweight, please talk with your doctor about changing to a different medication. Please keep me posted?
