Topiramate
12/28/2012
I have been on a weight loss program. Been taking phentermine hcl 37.5 mg. Recently was also given the drug Topiramate 50mg to take along with the other drug. I did not feel like I got enough information from my doctor about this drug. Going on the internet & researching it myself has made me not want to take it. I am wondering if you could give me some information on this drug. Isn't is for seizures? If so should a person that doesn't have seizures be taking such meds - wouldnt that cause seizures later on? I haven't taken the medicine yet with the phentermine. I just would like more information. My doctor basically said it was something new that had come out & gave it to me. Said if I liked it to take it if I didn't then don't take it. I would love any information or concerns that you might have with these two medications combined. For instance does it cause heart problems? I am a healthy person and would love to keep it that way.

AskDocWeb: Topiramate (brand name Topamax) is an anticonvulsant (antiepilepsy) drug. It was most recently approved for weight loss by the FDA. MedlinePlus has a pretty good FAQ about Topiramate. That FAQ also lists more than 60 possible side effects and some do involve the heart.

AskDocWeb: If your prescription says to take one a day then taking any more than that would be an overdose, which is dangerous any may be lethal. Always consult with your doctor about any change in your daily dosage.

When losing weight it is to be expected that your progress will level off at some point. It's sometimes referred to as hitting a plateau and eventually happens with all diets. Here are some of the solutions that others have found to work successfully to break through a weight loss plateau:
  • Increase the intensity of the workout, work harder.
  • Change your workout routine every 2-to-4 weeks.
  • Workout for longer periods of time.
  • Workout more often, which could mean more days a week or even working out twice a day.
  • Eat less, as in fewer calories per day.
  • Improve the quality of the food you eat.
  • Try Intermittent Fasting.
  • Workout While Glycogen depleted to burn fat faster.
If you have any health problems it is important to check with your doctor before changing your exercise program. Remember that the closer you get to your weight loss goal the longer it's going to take to lose those last few pounds so be patient.
