    Default Phentermine and Topamax

    Hello
    I just started this diet but am wondering if anyone was put on this combination. My doctor said the Topamax will help with the headachs as well as sleeplessness that comes with this drug. I am a little scared of the whole thing but want to loose weight so bad. I have been on the Phen for a week and have really experiences apitite loss. but my energy level is a little low. I also seem to be a little sensative to light but besides that so far so good.

    I am going to a weight loss clinc now since March and they put me on phen and topamax as a weight loss combo. I do not have migraines. I have lost 52 lbs so far and have not had any side affects except that the topamax kept me awake at night! So I now take it in the mornings with my phen. The doctor I go to is currently running phase 3 trials for the new drug he is developing that will combine the two in one pill. When it goes on the market I think it will do real well for the weight loss community! I wish you much luck!

    Hi Doxiegal

    I am new here, is that Dr. Najarian? I am doing this through my regular Dr., but I have a friend who goes there. I haven't started the topamax yet, because my Dr. wanted to run bloodwork...but am nervous/excited to get this going.

    The Phentermine will be more apt to cause sleeplessness than Topamax will, at least that's the way it is for me.

    topamax will help you also lose water weight, increase your water!. I took both but at different times, phen helped me lose 50 pounds in 2 month, but i cheated. i would go day without eating a meal because i was simply not hungry but that's the only way you'll see big result's. if i just hungry i'd eat a half of a snickers to get my sugar's up for energy. It's easier not to eat but take full advantage of this while you have it. I 'am a pharmacy tech and i will start back soon get down to your goal weight and eat only if you need to, you'll see big results 10 to 15 pounds a week for real. stay moving and watered up! walk the mall or track you'll see big results!. topamax may even cause headache's depending on the dosage, it suppresses appetite too!
