Tomorrow I am going to begin a clinical trial at UCLA for we bipolar types who have gained weight because of their meds. I will either be assigned Meridia or Topamax (I'm hoping for Topamax) and will take it in conjunction with my Depakote. I gained 45 pounds in about 3-4 months on Depakote after always being very petite - very depressing as you all well know. I lost about 25 pounds through diet and exercise by going off my meds for a while but now that I'm back on, I've hit a wall. I will keep you updated on what I learn as I go.
