All this talk about Topamax - I just wanted to let everyone know... I am participating in a research study involving Zonisamide. This is a drug that is similar to Topomax, as it would be used as an add-on to your primary anti-psychotic for treatment of bi-polar disorder. Like Topamax, it too falls under the anti-convulsant category. It also has been shown to counter act the weight gain that is associated with most anti-psychotics, as one of its side effects is weight loss. It also does not carry some of the uglier side effects that Topamax does (i.e. hairloss, acne) Unlike Topamax, Zonisamide is available in a generic form which would be much more cost effective for those taking it. The study is 12 weeks long and I will be more than happy to keep you guys up to date on my experience with the drug!
