In brief: It varies

Weight loss with topamax (topiramate) varies from person to person.
I have seen people actually gain weight on topamax (topiramate), and i've seen person lose up to 100 pounds. Those that lose weight can lose it quickly, while other more gradually. Weight loss depends on many factors. Topamax (topiramate) can make you sleepy. The main complaint i see from patients is short term memory trouble.
