Just wondering, did you mean that you are taking Adderall to lose weight only? I suppose that would be off label just like topamax would be. I am just getting so frustrated with the constipation side effects being an IBS patient that I'm torn between the two issues. I think the constipation is winning and I am better off dealing with the weight on my own...scary though.
hi axlsmom. sorry am not familiar with topomax, but i am definately familiar with ant-dep, ant-psych meds that stack on weight. i was put on zoloft over 20yrs ago, for me it was not a good drug period! i found that anti-psych meds gave me the munchies, esp zyprexa!! wow stacked it on with zyprexa, a few others did likewise, although i have not found anti-deps to do this, rather some have done the exact opposite. i have been on the merry go round 4 a long time now, and over the past 5-6 wks i have gone of effexor xr 375, for pristiq, 200mg. was on effexor 4 four yrs, pooped once too many. for sleep, due to insomnia, and that my brain finds it hard 2 shut down, i therefore am on seroquel, 900-1200mg, yeah a lot, if you new my history you would understand!!
take care, thanx 4 your post. and keep posting, kindest of regards, jamie
