I can't remember when my weight loss started but I know it wasn't in 3 weeks because my doc started me slowly on Topomax. And even if they started you on a higher dose it takes awhile to get into your system. Give it time. You have to be patient and dont' get on that scale again, until you start eating less. You will know when you start eating less. You will know when your appetite is suppressed, believe me. Topomax works as an appetite suppressant. Some days I will forget to eat. My husband has to remind me.
good luck and if you need anything just holler.

> Hi Girls! Hope this message finds you both feeling well. I was just reading your messages and though I always read through the messages, I haven't written one in a while. I am still keepin' on with the Topamax. Doing pretty good with the depression. I still have a lot of social anxiety, which is kind of new for me because I am usually a very outgoing person. Do either of you experience that? I feel like just staying home all the time instead of going anywhere an I get nervous when I have to go places.
> OK, so I've been on the Topamax for like 3 weeks and I don't think I lost any weight yet :(
> Well, I weighed myself last week and I hadn'd lost a pound and of course that ruined my whole day so I am afraid to weigh myself again. Isn't it amazing what one little thing can do to ruin what would have been a normal day??
> Anyway, I will keep my fingers crossed and try to weigh again next week. Like both of you were saying, my weight gain from the meds has made my deprssion even worse than it was (and I didn't think that was possible). I know losing this weight would make a world of difference. Thanks for listening!!
> Have a good weekend. Hope all is well on your end!
