The diarrehea is part of the problem that the FDA is warning about in the DEC 30th message in LISA's post.
if you go to the FDA web site www.fda.gov/medwatch/safety/
and look up topamax it's under dec 30th it's causing hyperchlorermic, non-anion gap metabolic acidosis which can affect your whole body and cause a lot of problems to your kidneys, heart etc. It causes ketosis....like the Atkins Diet...which is why you loose weight.....which can be very damaging if not done safely. It's also why you were told to drink cranberry juice so you don't get kidney stones. You can look the term up on the internet to see everything it does. Anyway, gotta go. Crystal
