For everyone who is unhappy being overweight on some of the antipsychotics like seroquel and rispirodol and others (I gained 40 lbs in 4 months or less last summer) my doc put me on topamax as a mood stabilizer (like lamictal) and it's working and I'm losing weight. Is anyone else on it? Would you care to share your experience? You drop weight so quickly. What other side effects that affect me are are that I need to take it in the morning because it causes me to be up all night if I take it at night. It also causes nervousness but if I take it with klonopin that wipes it out and the house gets cleaned too. Yesterday I actually went to a movie by myself, cleaned the house, gave the dog a bath and slept too. I did not take an anti depresssant and I was not feeling like a slug for the first time in a long time. But i still can't judge if I'm just a bit energized by this or am getting manic just because i'm not acting like a slug. Help!! Need your advice.
