Crazy Free Spirit posted a topic in Anticonvulsants / Mood Stabilizers - Bodies A-Twitchin', Moods A-Switchin'The Last time I went to see my Psych Dr. she said she was going to add Topamax sometime in the near future in addition to my meds I currently take which are Abilify5mg and Lexapro10mg plus I also temporarily take singular10mg as well which I hope to not take for long once I find out about the sleep study I had done to see whether or not I need to have a cpap machine I hope I get approved for one so I can drop the singular anyhow my appetite is through the roof and to the sky I eat anything and everything that's not nailed done and my mom has noticed me getting bigger in my arms and waist and belly area and she's worried about that I am too and I am thinking of what my Dr. mentioned that would possibly help me control my appetite and lose some weight and that's Topamax I am not on it yet just wondering if it would help me to lose weight has anyone taken it for that reason? I am going to discuss my situation with my Dr the next time I see her and see if shell add Topamax in addition to my meds I already take. Abilify I think is bad for weight gain not so much Lexapro I don't think it causes weight gain too but I am fed up with being fat and getting fatter as I speak. I have been fat for way too long in other words and I don't want to die fat I want to be thinner and live longer not die because of something so trivial like my weight. I am worried more worried than I have ever been its not showing up on the scales that I have gained weight but I feel it in my clothes my clothes feel tighter on me. I have some Alli I am thinking of trying in the mean time just to get my weight down some before going on Topamx what do you guys and girls think I should do finish the bottle of alli I have or wait to talk to my Dr. in a few months about trying Topamax?
