If I go off topamax (topiramate) will I gain weight? Haven't noticed it causing any weight loss in yrs. Was 149 lbs on it (&celexa)but now on wellbutrin which helps!!

Likely outcome- no: Topamax (topiramate) may cause weight loss by several mechanisms, but it is not a very effective weight loss treatment. It appears you were not using it to manage weight. You did not experience weight changes with it. That helps predict the outcome.

When you discontinue topamax, (topiramate) it is not likely you will gain weight. ...Read more

I'm taking Topamax (topiramate) 200mg and wellbutrin 400mg will they both help me lose weight I'm trying to lose 20 I take for psychotropic medications?

Maybe: The manufacturers of Topamax (topiramate) suggest that it can control binge eating, and welbutrin is somewaht activating so they may help. However, the best way to look at these meds is that they are prescribed to treat your psychiatric condition and that at least they are not know for causing weight gain and do not stand in your way. Topamax (topiramate) is a serious medication and needs to be taken exactly as prescribed. ...Read more

Topamax (topiramate) substitute for weekly migraines w/no weight gain&memory loss side effects? Tylenol, NSAIDs&neurontin don't work. On trileptal, klon, &wellbutrin now

Topamax (topiramate) substitute for weekly migraines w/no weight gain&memory loss side effects? Tylenol, NSAIDs&neurontin don't work. On trileptal, klon, &wellbutrin now

Weekly migraine: Most people would not take a medicine every day to prevent a migraine that occurs once per week. Unless that migraine lasts several days.

Substitutes for topamax (topiramate) could be propranolol, magnesium, or valproate perhaps. Normally wellbutrin and propranolol are not used together, in case the mood worsens.

Why are you using trileptal? Your side effects may occur due to medicine interactions. ...Read more

My doctor prescribed me with cymbalta (duloxetine). Will it cause acne and hair loss? I experienced those side effects with Wellbutrin XL.

My doctor prescribed me with cymbalta (duloxetine). Will it cause acne and hair loss? I experienced those side effects with Wellbutrin XL.

It should not: If it does, it is worth the risk. Acne can be managed; usually topical benzoyl peroxide is sufficient. It's difficult to know what to make of accounts of sudden hair loss in people on this medication; emotional turmoil can do this to people. Even if it is real, it is a small price to pay for relief of the terrible, private pain for which this medicine is usually prescribed. Be brave and go ahead. ...Read more

Will I gain weight if I (slowly) go off 100mg topamax (topiramate)? I'm on wellbutrin&I eat a strict healthy vegan diet.

How about exercise?: I was waiting to hear "and get on a GREAT REGIMEN of EXERCISE. Weight control is contingent upon eating well, eating only for the body's needs not the brain's, & giving the body plenty of opportunity to burn excess calories thereby improving conditioning and general wellness. So I would say, NO you shouldn't worry about coming off TOPAMAX (topiramate) in terms of weight if you do these things. Why on Topamax (topiramate)? ...Read more

Can you please compare/contrast Effexor (venlafaxine) XR vs. Wellbutrin xl?

Can you please compare/contrast Effexor (venlafaxine) XR vs. Wellbutrin xl?

Very different meds: Effexor (venlafaxine) xr works on serotonin and ne reuptake; wellbutrin xl works on ne and dopamine. Both are long-acting, and both work for depression. Effexor (venlafaxine) can help anxiety + depression; wellbutrin does nothing for anxiety. With wellbutrin the main dangerous side effect can be seizures; with Effexor (venlafaxine) it's possible hypertension. Sexual side effects with effexor; not so with wellbutrin.

Wellbutrin XL vs bupropion sr side effects?

Wellbutrin XL vs bupropion sr side effects?

Buproprion: Bupropion sr and wellbutrin (bupropion) xl are two different products with the same active antidepressant drug (buproprion) but they differ in the delivery rate in our system: the sr (slow release) and the xl (extra long). In my clinical experience, they are very similar, and the difference in side effect is the sleeplessness that could result from taking the xl formulation. ...Read more
