Zonisamide (Zonegran), in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet (deficit of 500 kcal/d), resulted in an additional mean 5-kg (11-pound) weight loss compared with diet alone. This regimen was well-tolerated in obese female patients. Further evaluation of long-term side effects and continued weight loss beyond 32 weeks is needed.
