Topamax prescribed specifically as a weight loss aid?

Recently, I was my PCP and inquired about appetite suppressants. (I had taken adipex many years ago, which was great) and she informed me that she did not prescribe Adipex due to the possible cardiac side effects - but that she was prescribing Topamax as a weight loss aid due to the side effect of the medication being loss of appetite. She said it works quite well for a large majority of her patients, but not everyone.
Has anyone here been prescribed Topamax specifically for this reason? If so, how well did it work and would you recommend it?
