Topomax did not do anything to help my symptoms and caused me to lose 20 pounds over the course of taking it. I started Topomax in the fall of 2014 and by January of 2015 was on 100mg. I noticed myself losing weight and felt like no matter how much I ate I continued to lose weight. This became detrimental to my health as I did not have this weight to lose. By spring of 2015 I went off topomax after not seeing any improvements in my concussion symptoms since being on it. Once off of the medication, I immediately started gaining back the weight I had lost.
