I've not heard of any long term effects of Topomax. To me the most important thing is that if they make me feel better that is what is important. I have been totally in the dumps and that I do not wish on anybody. Topamax has brought me joy and has brought me weight loss. Like I said before, it did initially bring me side effects like memory loss, disorientation, tingling of legs and feet, but that went away after about 8 - 10 weeks. The weight loss has stayed off and I feel wonderful. The fact that I feel great outweights any risks if there were any, but there are none. None more than there are with any other drug like zoloft or wellbutrin or any other ssri and most of those drugs make you gain weight. give it a try. good luck

> Hi LB,
> I am currently taking 50mg of Zoloft and 150mg of Wellbutrin. The Zoloft has worked great in the past but caused weight gain...I tried other SSRI's but they all make me gain so I went back to Zoloft and added the Well to help control my cravings. I've only been on the Well a week but it is causing a lot of anxiety and I feel sedated most of the day. I am not bi polar- I was first diagnosed with dysthymia but then with major depresssion. Have you heard of Topamax working with Zoloft? Is it a safe drug? I am afraid of long term effects from these drugs. I need something to help control my weight and I won't beat the depression until I feel good about my body. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks
