Am glad to see this post. Have been on Topamax for over a year, 300mg final dose. Have lost weight. Now I have other questions. At first, the side effects did not bother me much, but now I notice they are stronger, especially the cognitive effects. I search for words more often, my eyes get dry a lot, and my blood glucose tested 56 last week.

Am attributing this to the weight loss? Less of me and more of the drug (too high of a dose?) I have stopped drinking (maybe no interference?)

Do people regain the weight they lost once they go off Topamax? I don't want to have three closets of clothes in varying sizes due to drugs.

Would appreciate any feedback.

PS: Am on the med for mood stabiliZation and it has worked for me very well.
