try the acai berry diet. i don't know what you've tried, but if you google acai berry diet it has had some pretty decent success. or you could always try the old school method of burn more calories than you consume.

Topamax is an anti-seizure drug commonly prescribe for mood disorders or migraines. It's side effects are commonly confused with weight loss. Side effects are loss of appetite, however this may affect people in different ways. And being that this is just a side effect of the drug, and not the purpose of the drug itself, it does not mean that it will neccessarily happen. Sometimes the brain is so powerful that it can override the drugs side affects of appetite suppression. Truthfully, some people happen to lose weight while on the drug, some people don't. But the drug itself is not prescribed for weightloss. I would research other methods of weight loss as opposed to going into drugs, where the side effects will eventually wear off anyway. Best wishes.
