Out of Control
Tuesday, September 02, 2008
I found out a few months ago that some of my migraine medications are associated with weight gain and also that the medication Topomax decreases appetite. So Monday, I finally had the opportunity to talk to my neurologist and add this medication to the mix. Immediately I could tell a difference and realized how out of control my appetite had been. In one year, I had gained weight as fast as I did when I was pregnant. In one meal, I suddenly had my normal appetite and was able to leave a the table at the restaurant with food still on the plate. What a difference! Don't get me wrong, I still get hungry, but I can manage it much better, and I can control my portions much better. Now I finally understand how my medications really had caused my eating to go out of control.
