> I did start the topamax. I haven't noticed a huge effect yet. Although I think maybe that when I eat a lot now, I feel full and a bit sick to my stomach. And I don't wake up starving for breakfast. So I can see how weight loss can happen with this. But I still get low blood sugar if I don't eat. So regardless of my appetite, I just need to eat better.

The Topomax sounds promising so far. Have you ever supplemented with chromium? It helps to even out blood sugar levels. If you haven't tried that yet and you're interested, don't get the picolinate form. There are health concerns with that one. See if you can find the polynicotinate or chelated version.
