Has Anyone Had Any Luck With Topamax (topiramate)? I'm On Day 2 And Have My Fingers And Toes Crossed!

Has Anyone Had Any Luck With Topamax (topiramate)? I'm On Day 2 And Have My Fingers And Toes Crossed!

I have been on topamax twice for my migraines. The first time I took for 10 years. I stopped because I felt it was not effective as it had been. Took a break for about 2-3 years. Began again in February 2017, having good results in combination with Botox treatments. It doesn't make me sleepy, dulls my appetite a bit, but no other side effects.

Worked great for me for a long time. Don't take really high doses though it will make you stupid.

I too have tried topomax. It made me so forgetful. I went to the pharmacy one day, picked up medicine and didn’t even remember I had gone to the pharmacy. I couldn’t take the head fog. I sure hope it helps you.

I tried it for 2 days. Second day woke up with voices in my head! Blood pressure has been low, upset stomach and diarrhea. A no go for me!

Been on it ten years. Took a while to come out of the fog but helped me with the intensity
