Glad to heaar you are doing well on Topamax. It worked well for me. I have ended up adding Depakote because I was rapid cycling and it really helped but the side effects are much stronger. My pdoc wants to try to titrate down the Topamax because it's always been sedating, but I'm feeling less stabilized already and am feeling very nauseous (have cut back from 250 mg to 200 in the last three days).

So perhaps I need both.

With all the weight gain on these meds, it's a nice change, isn't it? I gained @10 pounds toot sweet on Zyprexa.

Celexa also worked for me for awhile without any really noticable side effects, so that's great, too.

I used to get upset when I saw the words "for awhile" but that seems to be the case with many people. I take Prozac now, but am not certain I need it, but am too scared to stop it. :)

Good luck.

> I'm on 100 mg a day of Topamax and 40 Celexa. The combination is great. I started September 10 and have lost 6 lbs. Seems like now at least every other day another lb comes off. I gained 35 lbs on paxil but was way underweight so only needed to lose 15 of it. So, I have 9 to go. I'm a lifetime member of Weight Watchers but with the Topamax, don't stay on the program. No need to. I just go weigh in to stay on their books.
> The only side effect I've had besides the weight loss is a little bit of an elevated mood. Which, of course, is also a plus. (My husband loves it!)
> Keep me posted on how you're doing. Some great person by the name of Tiff posted this message board address on another board so this is the first time I've posted.
> Later!
