TO DROP MY WEIGHT, I DROPPED THE DIET SOFT DRINKS.

Been on Zonegran for about five years and a type II diabetic for 35 years using metaformin and insulin. It appears the jury is in for me on my obesity. I drank two to three diet soft drinks a day (and the drugs I took before Zonegran for my bipolar disorder did not help either), but I found that by drinking Vitamin Water and other enhanced waters, I lost 12 lbs. between November and March and overall I have dropped from 330 to 280 lbs. I am now off one of my many drugs and have been able to decrease the units of insulin I take per day. I am not saying it will help everyone, but it certainly helped me and it might prove to be an exit for others. David.
