I started on very small dose of Topomax because the doc still had me on depakote so I started on 25 mg a day and gradually upped me to 200mg a day. I started losing weight at about 50 to 100 mg a day, which was about a month or two into topomax. I just literally lost my appetite. But the best thing now is that topomax really works for me. I am happy and content with my life and I have not regained my weight although I have regained some of of appetite I have not regained any of my weight because I've learned new ways of eating. I love topamax.
I did deal with many of the side effects at first but now I feel fine.
