I hope it's ok that I enter this conversation. I am on Topamax and it has eliminated my desire to drink. I can't even finish a drink when I try. But honestly, I'm just not interested anymore. I'm on Wellbutrin too, so I don't know if that figures into the equation at all.

Best wishes,
Ellen

> Thanks, Shadows. The Wellbutrin helped curb my appetite for food, but the alcohol is a craving from my soul. Being less depressed thanks to effexor, and 2 therapists, helps too. I know that the root of my problem is deep in my psyche that no medicine can touch.
> I cut out caffiene, most sugars, and decongestants which helped with the anxiety. I take vitamin supplements every day.
