Abstract: Objective · To systematically evaluate the effect of topiramate on reducing body weight increase causedatypical antipsychotic drugs. Methods · A literature search was performedusing PubMed database, Embase database, PsycINFO database, Cochrane Library, CNKI, WanFang data and SinoMed. Randomized placebo-controlled trials of topiramate targeting weight-gain causedatypical antipsychotic drugs inception to Mar. 2019. Two researchers independently screened literatures according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria, extracted data, and assessed methodological quality of included studies. The meta-analysis was performed using RevMan 5.3 software. Results · A total of 20 randomized controlled trials were included, consisting of 1 024 subjects. The results of meta-analysis showed that topiramate was significant effective in reducing atypical antipsychotic-related weight gain [weighted mean difference (WMD)-4.09, 95% CI -5.74 - -2.44, P0.000]. The body mass index (BMI) was also improved significantly (WMD-2.42, 95% CI -3.02 - -1.82, P0.000). Conclusion · Topiramate can effectively improve the body weight and BMI increase causedatypical antipsychotic drugs.
