I have been on 300mg of Topamax and 900mg of Gabapentin since June - but in November I could not afford to pay for it (No insurance) and since then I have gained 30lbs! OMG! Do you think this is related?
I am getting back on the meds but this gain is NUTS
I just found out I CAN'T go back on my meds - the pharmacy I used (which was a discount pharmacy) CLOSED - i paid only $20 for my topamax - not having insurance - I can't afford it now! it's a couple hundred bucks!
You might want to see if your doctor has samples of Topomax. I was on it for a few months and lost about 20 pounds which was nice, but it made me extremely loopy! My doctor took me off of it. I'm on my 6th different medication. Hopefully this one (Lamictal) will be the one that I have the least amount od side effects with. Maybe it is your other medication that is causing the weight gain. Good luck!
