Default Re: Anything to Curb Hunger..

I still experience hunger even with the topamax, but I do find it manageable. I do intermittent fasting. I donít eat after 5:30 and I donít eat before 9:30AM. It really works. Also diet drinks (not soda) can really help. I like Gold Peak diet tea. Itís completely diet. It tastes like regular sweet tea. It will fill you up. Also diet juice exists that only has 40 calories per bottle. I also donít eat with my meds. I find that I get hungry and will overeat If if eat immediately after taking them. So I usually wait 30 minutes to an hour. Distracting yourself helps too. Knowing itís ok to be hungry.

Intermittent fasting, and diet drinks are the main things for me. Topamax does help some. I do wonder if it was the switching benzos that helped more though.
