    Topamax for Sleep disorders; Mood swings; Borderline; Depression

    I’ve been taking fluanxole for 5 weeks against strong turf, which is part of my borderline disorder. It also works against my depression. I take 0.5 mg in the evening. As a side effect, I notice that I have an increased appetite for sweets, otherwise my mood is extremely positive and it works. Due to extensive experiences with psychotropic drugs, this medicine is for me otherwise quite poor in side effects, it even counteracts my nightmares and keeps me at a distance to my thoughts without giving me a feeling of drowsiness. However, I have noticed that lately I am very awkward and stumble constantly or somewhere stumble, whether that is due Fluanxol I can not say. Therefore, until now, the urge to sweets at night (hence weight gain) and eventual coordination (concentration) disorder as a side effect of me to consider. The citalopram I take for 4 years, after I had already increased abundantly before my weight has increased, but I have taken other medications. Otherwise it helped more or less. However, I often have more depressive episodes. In the beginning dizziness and unrest, but that passed. Otherwise well tolerated. With Topamax I had no problems, I got it for mood swings because I was also a migraine sufferer. There were no side effects. Not even the hoped-for weight reduction that it supposedly should have. I had to increase the dosage again and again in order to achieve an effect, but I’m no longer convinced, because I’m now quite unstable, as far as my mood is concerned. In an attempt to drop it, I got spasm attack, which was extremely unpleasant. Saroten is an attempt to treat sleep disorders with an antidepressant. In that respect, unfortunately, it fails with me. My mood is better and it makes me less. However, my appetite is enormous and I am gaining weight again, otherwise I do not notice any side effects.

    Side effects: Increase in weight

    Topamax for Depression; Migraine

    Had 2 1/2 years 150 mg. Tgl.Trevilor taken. One of the most unpleasant NW of this is the complete Dessinteresse on the sex life. Not only for that reason, but much to the delight of my husband, my neurologist and I decided on Elontril. After a one-day break, the immediate change to Elontril took place. I started from a gradual transition. Probably I was wrong. Already on the first day I got circulatory problems and tingling in the limbs. These symptoms then intensified the following day. In addition, and that was far worse for me, my depression came back so much that they put me out of action for the next 3 days. In the meantime I have recovered from it. Since the 5th day I am now plagued by a permanent nausea that actually starts in the morning in the bathroom. Pregnancy is excluded and so bad is my game image so now again not synonymous;)!

    Side effects: Libido loss

    Topamax for Depression; Epilepsy; Migraine

    After the start of taking Topamax it came pretty quickly to the described weight loss – pleasant – but also to disorientation. Can also be related to previous brain surgery. For the treatment of focal epilepsy and migraine, I can only recommend Topamax. Since SAB with Clip Brain Aneurysm, I have depression that is getting stronger and now being treated with amitriptyline. Now, my brain sometimes runs like a DVD player in fast-forward or I fall asleep at the desk, can no longer assign things, I’m just completely confused. 1 and 2 do not seem to be compatible?

    Side effects: Dizziness; Weight loss; Fatigue
