imlaurie,
Did you have to tirate up on Zonegram just like Topamax...will you be increasing from what you are on now...maybe then you will lose the weight you put on from going off Topamax...

I'm now on Zonegran and that is working great and NO hair loss. My hair is growing back in and I give it a little help by staying on the vitamins. The hair loss was the only bad side effect that I had from the Topamax.

I have already gained 5 pounds (yuck) but on the flip side my hair loss has stopped, just like that!! I guess you just can't have it all.
> Has anyone on Topamax had trouble with excessive dry skin? I was so busy worrying about my hair that I wasn't paying attention to my skin. Now I notice that my feet are not very nice to look at anymore, cracked heels, etc. Also just dry skin in general.
> By the way I notice no side effects with the Zonegran at all and I have been on it for about a month now.
