hello! You wont gain weight on that! You will loose weight!! In fact the fda is getting ready to release a new diet drug that has topamax and some other diet drug in it!
As far as luck, i wouldnt know! I to was diagnosed as same as you. At the time they only gave me depakote! What a joke that is!
I asked for the topamax and the dr said this: Oh no, you dont want that, we call that drug dopamax! Well!!! A friend of mine used it and told me she felt real weird for about a week!
I sure would like to try this drug but i have to get into the system, meaning, regular shrinks, not the er i went to. This depression is relentless! And now my family judges me, watches every sticking move i make, make hurtful comments at ***anything i say*** i am sick of it! They think they are so perfect! They need to look into there own mental issues and find out why it is they smoke medical weed!!! Oh man!!! That really ticks my off! They tell me smoke it, it will make you **not weird** well, i tried it, and omg! Who can stand that stuff? Not me! Makes me real withdrawn and paranoid! So they can keep there lousy happy smoke! Oooh! That was a vent huh?? Lol sorry!
Take care and i wish you the best! I hate human suffering!
