Topiramate is an antiepileptic drug also used in the treatment of bipolar disorder. Several authors have reported the efficacy of topiramate in controlling the clinical manifestations of bipolar disorder and its ability to reduce the appetite, thus, the weight. Here, we present a case report showing a strong evidence of topiramate effectiveness in the treatment of obesity induced by psychotropic drugs. Our patient, a young woman suffering from bipolar disorder, was treated for 6 months with topiramate. Our clinical study demonstrates both the effectiveness of topiramate to control the clinical manifestations of bipolar disorder and to reduce the gained weight induced by mood stabilizers and antipsychotics in our bipolar patient.
