My pdoc just switched me from Depakote ER 1500mg to Topamax for Bp I. I have had signifigant weight gain in just 2 months on Depakote so I asked her to switch me. I am just starting the Topamax tonight. She said to decrease the Depakote to 1000mg and start 50mg of Topamax for 5 days, then 5 days with 500 Depakote and 100 Topamax and then stop the Depakote all together and increase the Topamax to 150mg. After that and 5 days at 150mg she is going to do blood work to test my blood levels and liver enzymes just as she did with the Depakote to see if this is a good maintenance dose. I'm really hoping this helps me to loose the weight I gained on the Depakote plus an extra 20lbs I have been carrying around for a few years. Has anyone else had similar experiences they would like to share? Jenn
