Topamax and Zyprexa?


Recommended Posts

  • 2 months later...

I tried it as one of my first cocktails (about 15 years ago)... Put on tons of weight from Xyprexa and the topamax was as effective as a sugar pill for me. Everyone is different though... but I heard many people talk about weight gain from xyprexa and depakote. The weight gain always made me more depressed - kinda defeated the purpose of the drugs for me... Also know that Topamax is also used for treatment of migraines.

Im on Zyprexa and Topamax. Zyprexa for psychosis and Topamax for bulimia. Zyprexa made me very hungry and eat a lot. I put on a lot of weight and was bingeing and vomiting all day. Topamax cured the urge to purge but didn't mitigate the effects of excessive Zyprexa hunger and weight gain. I carefully watch my diet and exercise for 2 hours every day and have lost 30lbs of the 50lb Zyprexa weight gain all whilst still on Zyprexa. But if you are looking for Topamax to reduce the Zyprexa weight gain it probably won't happen. Its a good mood stabiliser/AP combo though.
