Taking Topamax along side Lithium

Currently I have been on Lithium for 11 years. I have had considerable weight gain. I talked to my Psychiatrist about Topamax because it has some anti-bipolar properties and could help in my weight loss. Does anyone have any experience in combining the two drugs?

Re: Taking Topamax along side Lithium

I took both for a while. I started the Topamax to help in weight loss from all the weight I gained from all the meds, including Lithium. I eventually stopped the Lithium altogether. Today I take Topamax, Abilify, Lamictal and just added Prozac 9 months ago. The Topamax works great for me. I lost weight pretty quick in the beginning. I was a size 14, now I wear a size 3, even 1's.
