I too started taking topa almost 1 week ago.
started it in order counteract weight gain from Proz and to control compulsive binge eating and bulimic behaviors.
so far it hasn't really helped me out.
i still eat as much as I usually eat, crave sweets, and feel compelled to snack late at night even though i am not hungry.
i've been taking 25mg before going to bed. i'm sleeping fine and waking up like usual, but i'm finding myself enervated when i try to exercise or do anything too physically tasking.
minor pins and needles in my feet. Soda still tastes fine to me.
no noticeable cognitive slowing, but if i really think about it, maybe i have been finding myself at a loss for the right words. not too bad though.
i'm thinking of increasing my dose to 50 mg -- taking 25 mg around 3:00pm and taking another 25 mg at bedtime.
anyone taking topa to control binge eating behaviors?
Has 50mg helped curve anyone's appetite?
There are a bunch of old posts, but not new recent ones.
I'd love to hear how people are doing on the med.
