> I started topamax three weeks ago and am very pleased with the results so far. I have been on wellbutrin (800 mg/day) and prozac (40 mg/day) for about a year and trying various anticonvulsants. Neurontin ... lamictal ... the depakote worked well, but after three months, my hair was falling out and I had gained 20 lbs. My doctor took me off the depakote and we tried tegretol. That made me so tired that I could not even get out of bed. That's when we added the topamax and gradually took me off the tegretol. Since then I've felt really great - lots of energy, extremely productive at work, excellent mood. Initially I noticed that I was out of breath (a concern for me because I'm an athlete) and quite anxious, but those side effects seem to have gone away. I'm currently taking 100 mg of the topamax and my doc thinks we will try to go up to 200. She and I both think this may be the right combo after a year of trying. Now that would be the best New Year's present ever. Good luck to you.
