Would A Change To Topamax Tablets Reduce Weight Gain?

I have recently been diagnosed with bipolar. Been on serequel which has been whined off and still on 1400mg of epilim a day. Up to date I have now picked up 13kg s in 2 months and climbing. Would a change to Topamax make any difference? I am only taking the epilim at this stage for preventative purposes however I am falling in a deep depression.
