    Topamax for Cluster headache

    Since the diagnosis in 2001 I am receiving preventive treatment with this drug. The application depends on the attack frequency and has already 1000mg daily dose means. Without this treatment, I would be a case of care and from the bed and out of the apartment did not come out. Only through a clear diagnosis of UNI Münster in person Professor Dr.Dr. Evers gave me another chance to shape my life. This treatment concept includes u.a. the standard treatments for cluster headache. Except for an initial weight loss and difficulty concentrating, with slight gait fluctuations and fears, I had no significant side effects with Topamax.

    Topamax for Migraine

    I started with 25mg in the evening and should be slowly dosing. In the first week of taking it, I fell asleep everywhere on the way, constantly getting into the wrong public transport or missed my stations and was therefore everywhere too late. Also, I felt like someone had put a dark bag over my head. I was extremely dizzy throughout and although I had the feeling to see normal, I still did not notice the details in the picture (like cars). I thought that was due to the many medical appointments and I was tired. In the second week I was not busy as scheduled and should therefore work again to 100%. About noon I had to go home to sleep, otherwise I would have fallen asleep at work and would certainly not get any understanding. The doctor had told me that the side effects would be very strong initially and would decrease over time. After about 2 weeks, I dosed up to 50mg and hoped the side effects would disappear over time, I finally wanted to know if it helps against my chronic migraine. I could not think clearly, not only at work but also in everyday tasks, such as shopping or just walking across the street or driving two stops by bus instead of 16 to the final stop. I could not count at all, even simple bills like 5 + 2 were an unsolvable puzzle to me. Even so, I stuck to the idea that the side effects might disappear and took it further. I dosed after about 3.5 weeks to 75 mg up. I got terrible stomach cramps from it and just wanted to sleep all the time. My sense of direction and even the ability to use my brain for thinking and to solve any tasks in the work, was no longer useful. The attempt to reach my neurologist to ask him for dosing advice had failed, so I dosed myself down to 50 mg. I took 50 mg for 2 days, but the stomach cramps that I have had since the 75 mg dose were getting worse. I was no longer able to work at all and otherwise only a miserable misery. Since I still could not reach my neurologist, I set the dosage after 2 days on my own down to 25 mg, because it was unbearable. That did not improve either. Finally, I reached my neurologist and was able to completely stop the medication after one week to 25 mg. Thanks to this drug and my increased need for sleep and constant dizziness, my now almost 6 year old relationship almost broke up. I almost did not speak anymore because I knew that with my brain skill nothing meaningful came out of me and if so, I would not have been able to process or understand the answer at all. I believe a drug with such side effects not only has the short-term effects of side effects on the body and even if you do not perceive them as extreme as I do now, so must something strong, if you take it in the long term, certainly have long-term effects. I do not think it’s worth bringing such medicines for migraine, after all it’s a more pronounced kind of headache and not life-threatening, so it’s not worth stuffing yourself with such crap and ruining your body with it. Dear Migraine as a loss of personality and complete disability. But maybe that’s just my experience. I had the pleasure of playing guinea pigs for migraine medications for 2 years and then had a little rest and got along better with my aspirin, than with any other meds. I have not tolerated a single medication for migraine so far and have tested about 30 so far. Everyone had terrible side effects on me and no improvement at all. Maybe I am an incompatible exception and other migraineurs tolerate the drugs well. Incidentally, I had weight loss, but that was probably less of the drug than that I slept instead of eating lunch and abens as well. However, the feeling of hunger was completely absent. I had sensory disturbances all the time, but they were not as bad as the rest of the side effects. I also had extreme acne and difficulty remembering the past. I also usually had to cry after work when I came home. However, I do not know if I should count this as depression or just a natural feeling when you feel like you can not do anything normal under the influence of such drugs and just be insane. The side effects disappeared 4 days after drug discontinuation, including the problem of being attached to past events

    Topamax for Epilepsy

    Have lost within a week 5 kg, that was the nicest side effect! Otherwise, I was with the drug very bad! At first, only this tingling in the toes and in the fingers, but then got depression and anxiety! Could not concentrate anymore, was just tired and I could not manage my household! I was dropped Topamax again and I was again switched to Lamictal, which I took before, again! I would not recommend Topamax to anyone! I am well again with Lamictal! But I also got seizure-free, despite the bad side effect! But I’m free of seizures with Lamictal!

    Topamax for Migraine

    I started with 25mg. Increase by 25mg monthly and I am now at 75mg (4×25). I had to start so creeping, because the side effects were so strong. Mood swings, depression, agitation, aggression, nightmares, anxiety. Since the burning on hands and feet was the most harmless. Since my migraine but very strong and common is nothing else than medication – Topamax is effective for me but I will probably still have to increase to 100 mg, if the side effects allow. Risk of weight loss I have to counteract with high calorie diet. Bananas and dried fruit are supposed to help against tingling – but I can not confirm that. Drink a lot of water against the kidney stone danger.

    Topamax for Migraine

    I was given this drug yesterday by my doctor without any previous examination. The only side effect she called me fatigue, so she advised me to take in the evening, which I then did with plenty of mineral water. When I got up after about 1 1/2 hours and wanted to go to the kitchen, I had to hold on everywhere, so dizzy was me what I had not noticed before lying down. There was also a tingling sensation on my hands, in my arms, in my mouth, and I had no taste left – the malt beer I ate after that tasted like nothing. In addition, I had an enormous pressure on the ears, I hardly slept, I was more panicked. I still have these symptoms this morning (it is now shortly after 11am) – a bit weaker – but they are all still there, so I’m really thinking about dropping a pill like this tonight.
