Topamax causing weight gain?!
Has anyone had unexplained weight gain on topamax? My neuro is having a hard time believing me because most people lose weight on topamax. But, I've gained almost 20 pounds in just three months. I noticed an increase in appetite after beginning to take the medicine so I attribute some of that weight gain to eating more. But, after I noticed the first 10 pounds gained I started counting calories, exercising more (sometimes up to 2 hours per day), and I still put on 10 more pounds. It's all fat. Not muscle.
I'm eating between 1500-1700 calories per day, running, dancing, and using my xbox workout videos daily. Has anyone else here struggled with weight gain while on topamax? Thanks!
