> You mentioned one side effect I don't need, weight loss. Is weight loss because of appetite suppression or does it actually cause you to metabolize things faster? My doc said it's due to suppression and at low doses I shouldn't worry, and at 25mg my appetite has not decreased at all. When did you notice a weight loss effect with Topamax, at what dose?

I began to notice a the effect at 25 mg
lsot three pounds the first week and then moderate amounts over a period of time...

the weight loss comes from appetite suppression and not from a change of metabolism ... I still have the same exercise and activity level I had before... still do the same things and still have the same energy level...
still do agility and tracking and obedience
still walk a lot
and now that my eye has been opened LOL I am able to use my cameras again (the right eye is my dominant eye for photography and target shooting another hobby of mine) and I plan to spend the next few months scrambling around photographing anything that catches my eye no pun intended, good or otherwise...
I have missed being able to use my cameras believe me...
the weight loss has occurred over a period of time, a long period of time and is I think continuing, although the past day or so is no indication of that as today I have an attack of the munchies...
I do not know what I want to eat, I just feel like eating...
so far I have not identified the subject of that need to eat but when I do, world look out !!!

this does happen to me on occasion...
however, I still have no wish to drink pop or juice-type drinks...

the weight loss was not a sudden and horrendously obvious thing...

but it has been a good thing from my point of view... I just don't want to return to the under 100 pound state...
