Default off topamax, back on prozac

Totally bummed to say that after about two months on Topamax, I decided to taper off completely. I reached a high of 75 mg, and my hair started falling out and breaking off in a scary way, and I decided to dose down but the loss did not stop (this is with taking plenty of biotin and having extremely thick hair). I hated the thought of what would happen if I stayed on it long-term.

I'm back on Prozac 20 mg in the hopes that it will not cause me to overeat and will continue to help me to lose weight since this is my main concern and the Topamax was helping me IMMENSELY with these issues. But I already know Prozac causes horrible anorgasmia so I'm actually dreading the entire thing.

They need to make a binge eating med like Topamax that won't make people bald and stupid!!

Topamax is awful. Your hair will start to grow again in a few months ok? So don't even stress about it!!!

Prozac made me gain... But I know others that didn't. Maybe you won't.

thanks guys!

@drivenbyambition I was on prozac for a little bit before and I didn't gain, if anything I lost a few lbs, but I do know how these meds can make people gain. It's awful.

I didn't stay on it very long. 5lb gain was enough for me.
