Topamax and Weight Loss

Even though Topamax can have the side effect of weight loss, it is not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a weight loss medication.

In clinical tests, weight loss while using Topamax was reported in up to 16 percent of adults and 21 percent of children.

Topamax is not considered appropriate for weight loss due to the multitude of other side effects caused by the medication. As always, the best advice for weight loss is a good diet plus exercise.
