Topiramate
Topiramate is an antiepileptic medication. It was FDA approved to treat seizures in 1996 and migraines in 2004. It is used off-label to treat several medical conditions, including mood, eating, and substance use disorders. In clinical trials, topiramate induced weight loss and improved blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes and obesity. Some users report that topiramate altered their sense of taste, which may help with appetite control. In one study, participants taking topiramate lost a mean of 9.1% of their body weight compared to the control group who lost 1.7% of their body weight.

How Does Topiramate Work?

Helps with Weight Loss

Topiramate’s exact mechanism of action is not known. It blocks voltage-gated sodium channels in the brain and enhances GABA receptor activity. Both effects exert an inhibitory effect on nerves, which slows the brain’s ability to send electrical signals and explains its efficacy in treating seizure disorders. It also seems to block calcium channels which may also explain its antiepileptic properties. In animal studies, topiramate was found to cause weight loss and improve insulin sensitivity.
