No problem Cocohoneynut,
>>Which meds were you on first?? Effexor or Topamax? Or were you on both at the same time of dx??
Effexor first, 4 years ago, then Topamax, 4 months ago. Was originally dx as Major Depressive, but couple years ago changed to BPII, which I've been saying for years is more correct.
>> How old are you and how long have you been on these meds?
I'm 40 and I've been on meds nearly 20 years.
>>Have you had any weight gain or weight lost?
Both. Mostly Gain. I was always very thin until starting psychiatric medications...and have put on 60+pounds since then. Lately, since starting Topamax, I've lost 16lbs without effort, but it has stopped since my body has adjusted to the meds.
