Question Atlanta gal wanting to try topamax...

I have been hearing alot of good things about topamax being used to help with OCD, binge eating, bulmia, migrains... and all without causing weight gain! I suffer from all of the above so I would love to at least try topamax but for some reason my doc won't even entertain the idea? Among other reasons I would really love to find another md...one who actually remembers what I am suffering from, I have made alot of progress and want to keep it that way, I think my current doc has forgotten how bad I was when I first met her 2 years ago...too busy and too impersonal! So I was wondering if anyone was from the Atlanta GA area (or nearby) who could recommend a doc to me, preferably one who is willing to prescribe topamax or at least be open to trying new things

Re: Atlanta gal wanting to try topamax...

I'm not sure about the med you're asking about, but I just started on Lexapro, and it seems to be helping me alot, I know I have OCD tendencies, along with anorexia and I'm doing much better and have only been on it for a short time. As for the dr., I am from the Atlanta area, and I would totally recommend Dr. Nina Schlacter. She specializes in women with ed's, in fact, she's over the women's center at a treatment center in the Atlanta area.

Good luck!
