I started taking 50 mg of Topamax and I was wondering how long it takes to work for weight loss???

    I feel like within 2 weeks or so I started losing weight. It really helps if you do some sort of exercise with Topamax to lose weight.

        I was on Topomax but my eyesight is more important than weight loss. That med caused permanent damage to my eyesight. Try not to go over that 50mg is very harmful. I have chronic migraines and I was in 250 mg. Now I have to wear glasses To read. I used to have eagle eyes now I’m Ms. Magoo 🤓. I get Emgalaty injections and Fioricet and epidural injections every three months. But one thing that actually worked is the daith piercing, it triggers the point pressure for migraines in acupuncture. Google it, I think I spelled it wrong.

    Ultimately I had to be taken off of it after taking it for 11 years

    I lost 10 lbs in 7 days and got to a scary low weight but ended up gaining a lot of it back

    Maybe 25mg or 50mg. It worked for me for several months and I'm taking it at an extended release dosage right now bc I was having issues being tired all day every day but haven't been losing weight on this regimen

    I'm on Topamax for migraines 150mg mornings and night. I never noticed weight gain or loss.
