    I lost 15- 20 lbs - although I didn't need nor really want to. Maybe 10 would have been enough - have always been a bit of a string bean!! When I went off it, I gained back about 7 and have stayed there which is fine with me.

    I lost 12 lbs initial because the Topa made me feel slightly sick all the time. I put about 3 or 4 back on when I went off. And I ws starving.

    Oh - you asked about the CD's - I meditate - well, I do when I haven't had a drink so didn't feel that for me the Cd's would be worth it. lots of others think they are worth it, so I think it is a personal thing. you might post in the general discussion and ask there and see what the general consensus is. For me though, it was a no - I have lots of stuff along those lines.

    hugs, sun xx

    When I first quit drinking- for about 13 days straight, I could not stop eating chocolate!(I mean I would wake up craving it!) I didn't really put on any weight, cause I'm pretty high strung(that's one of the main reasons I liked to drink, I liked the way it brought me down).
    But within the past week I've lost a few pounds- I'm just not as hungry!

    Airam, from what I gather, topa and naltroxene have totally different methods of operation. I did TSM (The Sinclair Method) for almost a year and had no luck. That was supposed to reprogram the pleasure sensors for alcohol so you no longer wanted to drink. Unfortunately, it only made me not want sex. Same for baclofen. I hope topa doesn't do the same!

    houtx, hooray for you. I might start on 100mg tomorrow. It's my day to increase. That seems to be the dosage where people start seeing results. I'm drinking a little less but not much.

    sidney, thanks for sharing your wisdom and experience (same to sunshinedaisies.) There is not a lot of info out there on topa. Again, I'm terrified my hair will fall out -- noticing shedding already -- which is why I 'm afraid to up my dose. But I'm taking all the supplements.

    I had high hopes for TSM and baclofen, neither of which worked, so I'm afraid to put too much into topa. But I'm following the program and everyone's progress and wishing luck to everyone.

    Hoping - I have tons of hair come out all the time - of course, mine is really fine and very thick to begin with, which yours may not be. I work with a lady who is on some sort of medicine as her hair is really thin and it is actually working and helping her - do you want me to ask her the name of it?

    Got to go to bed. i work mid shift tomorrow - was off today and have really enjoyed pottering round and being on here on and off. Take care all of you - won't be around so much tomorrow.

    Hugs to all,

    love, Sun xx

    Hi Guys, JUst checking in briefly to see how you are all getting on. Good news Sun....seems you are getting ssome results at last.. 2Run I am happy that you have you prescription, I wouldnt worry about getting more just yet, see how you go when you get up to 100mg...I am currently on 50mg...I was on 100mg for about ten days and started feeling very flat..so I decided to go back down and see what happened with the cravings...good news...the cravings are still non existent so I am staying on 50mg while I can. I felt the topa work very quickly for me...almost on the second day at 50mg...no cravings and the incessant mad drinking thinking just vanished into thin air. I am not sure how this happened, I was alcohol free 10 days after a massive 7 day bender that made me very ill, before i took the topa, so may be I was extremely motivated and also sick enough for it to kick in quickly. SE are some tingling in hands and feet but nothing to worry about. My appetite is normal and I suppose at this low dose I couldnt expect it to be diminished...but I am not complaining although I do have a lot of weight to lose. With time and keeping away from the grog, I know that slowly I will lose weight naturally. Good luck everyone...keep up the good work....will keep praying for us all

    Where does it go Houtx? I used Botin for hair lost. My hair got quite brittle so I cut it shorter.

    Yes, sun, would you mind asking? I have fine, thin hair to begin with that thinned more after my babies. I can't afford to lose much more! From the Paddy post though, I don't think that that is AS common of a SE but it can happen.

    When you say you were starving Sidney, do you mean once you came off? I've heard a few people say they ate like crazy on the topa and still lost... But you said you were sick so probably not...

    Thanks!!

    Topa day 3! Noticed my sleep wasn't great last night. Need to try melatonin. Forgot to take my magnesium before bed too.
