Have doctors prescribed Topamax for weight loss?
Yes. While Topamax was never approved by the FDA to help with weight loss, many doctors actually did prescribe the drug to help patients lose weight. However, the Department of Justice has accused Topamax’s manufacturer of trying to “push” off-label use of Topamax to help people lose weight.
