Depression board


hi i'd like to know if anyone out there has been prescribed Topomax to help with weight gain via other anti-depressants/anti-psychotics. i have gained 50 lbs in the last 6 months, from a size 6 to a size 17!!! i was originally prescribed meridia, but my psychiatrist was worried about me getting "serotonin syndrome" b/c i am on 60 mg of celexa.. i am also taking 10mg of valium 3 times a day and 40 mg of nozinan at bedtime for sleep (which makes me mad hungry!). i also have problems with sleep so i am hoping the topomax will help with my sleeping patterns. i would just like to know if anyone out there has seen improvements in weight loss as i am completely frustrated and angry at the weight i have gained through medications that are supposed to help me. my diagnosis is borderline personality disorder. thanks! :)
