Question by neurotransmitteralley: Has anyone who does not have epilepsy or migraine taken topiramate to reduce weight?
My dr. last week prescribed me topiramate while i am on Abilify (aripiprazole) to reduce weight that i have gained after taking antipsychotics. I put on 17 kgs in 3 months. I have tried dieting and exercise for 4 months with no success. If i take it for weight loss, how safe is the drug? how much weight loss should i expect to have? or should i go for other drugs like metformin, orlistat to reduce my weight?

Question by Susan L: Is there anyone who has taken xenical and not lost weight?
I have taken Xenical for two periods of six weeks at a time with a maximum weight loss of 2lbs. I eat a low fat diet and also take Nexium. Does this mean that the xenical is not working?

Xenical performs well in clinical trials, but it’s effect long term shows poor results. The best way to lose weight, is a healthy reduced calorie diet, combined with vigorous exercise DAILY.
