    Topamax for Cluster headache; Migraine

    Unbearable life with permanent strong headache has unfortunately brought me to take this drug. It definitely helps, however, the side effects are devastating, extreme drowsiness but a dose of more than 25 mg, fatigue, heaviness and blurred vision as well as nightmares. So unfortunately that also leads to incapacity for work! Would like more information about the drug.

    Side effects: Blurred vision; Dizziness; Fatigue

    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

    I was prescribed Topamax in a day clinic. I had significant side effects. I felt sick all day. Tingling in the arms and legs and feeling of weakness throughout the body. Extremely what the tingling under the feet, which was also connected with pain. I was constantly dizzy. Visual disturbances also came about. The worst was the depression, to suicidal thoughts. I absolutely could not concentrate. I’ve had an anxiety disorder for over 14 years, which has now developed into a generalized disorder. The anxiety was compounded when taking Topamax. But none of the doctors wanted me to believe that these are side effects of Topamax. I also took other medications at that time, but when I discontinued Topamax on my own, the symptoms disappeared again. The only good thing about the drug was that I had no more nightmares.

    Topamax for Migraine

    slowly increasing the dose for weeks – this did not equate side effects. Then severe vision problems (no straight line, letters distorted) when increasing to 1x 25 plus 1×12.5 mg. Initially, tapering to low doses (12.5 mg) for the eyes – this improved other symptoms, so they could be classified as side effects: severe diarrhea, headache, nausea, taste distortions (everything tasted bitter), loss of appetite, strong paresthesia in hands and feet – at night sleep disturbances -, depressive moods (wine attacks), weight loss 6 kg, blood sugar suddenly 122 (One week after weaning back to normal). Discontinuation of the remedy. Nevertheless, some side effects persist in a reduced form, the intraocular pressure still needs to be checked. The migraine (at least every 2 days, of several times a day with aura) has improved, but the price is too high. In particular, the depressive moods that lasted even with the smallest dosage, I can not accept.

    As already described; no desire for sex and caresses have unfortunately become unwanted side effects as well as digestive problems, sheep disorders; sometimes fatigue and difficulty concentrating. The seizures are a side effect of the surgery, have reduced to a few in the first 2 years after surgery, and it is estimated that I can dispense in 3-4 years on the medication. TOPAMAX 50 has also been tested recently, after two weeks of use it has severe depression, blurred vision, indigestion, severe motor difficulties, speech problems, persistent tingling in hands and feet, orientation problems. But was immediately put back on Keppra.
