I've never heard of that med as an antidepressant either. I would definitely talk to your doctor about the side effects. I know what it is like to not feel hungry and have to force yourself to eat. It doesn't help your metabolism either.
I would certainly talk to your doctor. Ive never heard of Topomax being used as a depressant It started as a migraine/anti-seizure med.Ask you doc about effexor I have been on it and I dont see any side effects
I Started out on Topamax 200 mg (apparently the lowest dose) for mood stabalizer on September 1, 2009. I was OK at first I was aware of the side affect of the cognitive functions being disruptive (and they have), and the loss of appetite, which I thought cool I get to lose a few pounds. But I am getting very freaked out, I can bearly take in 500 to 800 calories a day and that is usually forcing myself. I have been doing really well with my moods and it has been helping my depression also to the point where I have been wanting to get up and do stuff. Does anyone know if this is a side effect that will wear off, because I have tried to force myself to make myself eat more and it makes me sick. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate them thanks.
