Why can't you tolerate it? I did some reading up on it and it mentioned the glaucoma thing. Was that your problem? I thought that dexedrine was the infamous diet drug back in the 60's, but I believe it eventually causes rebound eating. But no matter, my pdoc won't bite anyway. I'll ask him about Topomax (that name suggests a roly-poly clown).
