I am a 42 yr.old female who has taken seveal different medicacations for grandmal seizures.I have been on tegratol, dilanton, nueronton, depacote, and several others.And if any of you have taken the depakote one of the side effects is weight gain.And of course if anyone is going to put the weight on it is going to be me! I did. I started taking the topamax on 3/15/01 and I have lost 37lbs and I feel great. The only side effect that I can tell that I am having from it is the tingling in the feet but I can live with that.I feel like a whole new person with this medicine.I think it is just great and I would recommend it to anyone who asked me about it.
