To Made-Up-Name,
I just logged in and saw your initial entry sent a few days ago. I hope you are still reading this thread, because just yesterday my pdoc started me on Topamax. I have been on Paxil for 5 years for severe depression and panic disorder, and although it has done wonders for my emotional well-being - it has done nothing for my shape! Actaully, it has done something - added 70lbs. Finally, in desparation I asked my pdoc to put me on anything else!! So, two months ago I slowly stopped Paxil and slowly started Effexor (the emphasis being on SLOWLY) - now I feel terrific! Yesterday, he started me on Topamax to help me lose the weight. I will be building it up slowly - 25mg every night this week - 50mg the following week and so on, until in 4 weeks I reach 100 mg each night. We are going to continue at that strength and see if it helps. I know our weight comes from different reasons - but, hopefully, your doctor will put you on topamax and give it a try! Maybe, we'll both lose weight!! Good luck to you - let me know how you get on. - limey
