I've been on it for years, but only in combination with other drugs. I was on Keppra for a long time until my doc switched me to Briviact.
The main side effects that I have had are tirednes, word finding issues and yes, weight loss. Nothing has been so bad that I would want to stop taking it or I would have done so years ago.
Topamax messed me up so bad I had a neurologist tell me that doctors have a tendency to call it dopamax because it does u up. I know it did on me too I had to get off of it
Re Topiramate (Topamax) It greatly reduced my appetite & I lost 4 stone.( People began asking if I was seriously ill ) I thought losing the weight boosted my confidence .Every drug affects people in different ways- other people may have put weight on
I use to be on topamax and all it did for me was make my headache hurt more that’s the only thing my seizures were still the same.
