Topomax and Weight Loss

hi i'd like to know if anyone out there has been prescribed Topomax to help with weight gain via other anti-depressants/anti-psychotics. i have gained 50 lbs in the last 6 months, from a size 6 to a size 17!!! i was originally prescribed meridia, but my psychiatrist was worried about me getting "serotonin syndrome" b/c i am on 60 mg of celexa.. i am also taking 10mg of valium 3 times a day and 40 mg of nozinan at bedtime for sleep (which makes me mad hungry!). i also have problems with sleep so i am hoping the topomax will help with my sleeping patterns. i would just like to know if anyone out there has seen improvements in weight loss as i am completely frustrated and angry at the weight i have gained through medications that are supposed to help me. my diagnosis is borderline personality disorder. thanks!

Re: Topomax and Weight Loss

Topomax does help you lose weight from what I have read. I had an allergic reaction (a rash) to it so I could not take it. I wish I could have because from what I hear, it really helps the weight come off. Good Luck
