The drug topiramate can help people lose weight as long as they can tolerate the side effects, according to authors of a new study that reviewed the medical literature. Brazilian researchers presented the results at The Endocrine Society's 93rd Annual Meeting in Boston.

Among more than 3,300 overweight or obese patients, those who took topiramate for at least four months lost 11.8 pounds more on average than individuals who took "dummy" pills, or placebo, found the meta-analysis, a systematic and quantitative review of published studies.

Very worrying. Weight loss is not a reason to take Topiramate!

I'm pretty glad I've resisted it, since I could do with putting a few pounds on at the moment, not losing them!

Yeah what they don't tell you is the reason you lose weight on this is because of the following:
You forget to eat
You forget to shop
You forget where the kitchen is
Or you are sat crying uncontrollably because or all of the above or for a reason that now completely escapes you or you can't explain as your word finding ability is greatly depleted.


Or was that just me? Allegedly....

I am actually relieved to hear some of you guys are finding this drug helpful as a management medication..I had a hellish time on it...
