In brief: Topamax (topiramate) side effects
I agree 100%. We have seen some dramatic weight loss in some patients on topamax (topiramate) and I have several patients whose type ii diabetes has resolved from the associated weight loss.
My poster child for topamax (topiramate) lost about 150 lbs. Not everyone tolerates it and it has be be tapered up very slowly. About 40% of patients eem to get some significant weight loss from our experience.
