Quote from barkingshark:Topamax is more effective to actually lose weight. It is not any safer as it is for epilepsy. Some people get psychotic when they discontinue an epilepsy med, however that is usually the case more with meds like Klonopin, which unlike Topamax, I would consider dangerous.
What? I have never heard of anyone getting psychotic from discontinuing a benzo. Head over to the anxiety board and you will see tons of people who have taken and stoppped taking benzos for years and years and have not become "psychotic." Maybe that is in huge doses or something.
This is beside the point, but I just wanted to add my two cents...i take Xanax and it is not dangerous at all unless you abuse it.
