is topamax good for treating depression and weight loss? thank you

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Dear friend,

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I believe that I can help.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Topamax is good for weight loss ONLY WHEN IT IS COMBINED WITH PHENTERAMINE.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

It is used for some mental disorders, but not for depression.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Talk to your physician about bupropioon (Wellbutrin) which is an antidepressant and does not promote weight gain, and may even promote some weight loss.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Why do you have Topamax?

Customer:

I dont have it,,my psychiatrist metioned it last week. I am not happy with how I am feeling and this came up in session

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Topamax is not the drug for weight loss and depression. Mention bupropion (Wellbutrin) to him.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I will show you something about it on the internet. Give me a minute to search my files.
