For about two months my stomach has hurt. I wasn’t able to place it. I did notice that I was eating gradually more and my weight increased. I was talking with Mom about it. That feeling is hunger. I didn’t place it because it’s been a long time since I felt hunger because I’m on Topomax.
I am on Risperdal. 44% of people who take it have increased appetite. Some describe it as a starving man at a buffet. I think its a good description. No matter how much I eat my stomach feels so empty and sometimes the empty feeling hurts. The only way to stop the feeling is to go off the medicine.
The big question, how will the doctor react when I say I can’t live like this?
