Yes, in Some: Though Topamax (topiramate) was originally used only as an anti-epileptic & migraine medication, it is becoming popular as a weight loss medication. It's mechanism of action in weight loss is uncertain, but it's efficacy in producing weightloss is well-documented.Combination with phentermine is also becoming more common. Phentermine has been known for years to suppress appetite.
