> I'm new to the message board as well as Topamax. While I was skimming through eveyone's postings, it seemed like most people are bi-polar. My doctor put me on it as a "last ditch effort". I have been on an entire category of anti depressants. I had then moved into anti psychotics and then when they didn't work we looked into the possibility of ECT. I have severe depression, OCD, anxiety disorder and borderline personality disorder. I was just recently hospitalized in February. Everything sort of came to a head when I (and everyone else) could no longer ingore the life I was "living". I am 28 years old. Topamax is my last hope. I am very scared of weight gain. I am also prone to bullemia. Forgive the novel I am writing but I have researched a lot of information about Topamax on the internet and my doctor says he's giving this to me for a mood stabilizer and anti anxiety. I am taking 25 mg am & pm for 1 week then I will bump it up to 50 twice a day. Although he says it's good for anxiety, I have more of it, but only at night - so I have to take Klonipin (something I had to w/draw from just a few short weeks ago). Also, he told me to drink a lot of water b/c it can cause kidney stones. It's too soon for the tingling in the hands yet or the confusion but I did experience that w/ Gabatril. Has anyone else been specifically been put on this FOR anxiety? Thanks in advance. Michelle :) P.S I have tried Neurontin - It did nothing for me! Me and medications are funny - they either totally effect me or not at all...

There are plenty of Topomax users posting their experiences on the following web site:
