Well, from what I have read it's not that cut and dry. Apparently with Topamax you have to go slowly because there are a bunch of annoying side effects. I do know that sometimes they prescribe Topamax to "reverse" the weight gain from meds--especially anti-psychotics. Not sure how it does it. Topamoax is being used off-lable for bipolar and unipolar depression. If you are gaining weight from an AD talk to your doc about topamax.
