    Topamax for Migraine

    For years I have been suffering from constant, almost daily, severe headaches. On the advice of my doctor, I take Topamax for a week now. The first two days, I did not notice any side effects. The third day I realized that I was very unfocused and listless at work, but could continue to pull me together. After consultation with my doctor about how it went, I should increase the dose of 25mg daily in the evening to 50mg. The next day I was not feeling well. At noon, diarrhea, nausea, and dizziness started. I could not think clearly or concentrate. My arms and legs are powerless and uncoordinated. I could not drive a car. My hands were numb and my forearms felt strange, as if they did not belong to my body. I was not hungry and did not feel like eating, let alone drinking or talking. I then took only 25mg again and held the next day consultation with my doctor. He said I first had to get used to the pills and should calmly increase the dose. I have done this for the weekend. In general I am in a bad mood since I took the pills. How depressive, but without reason. I have not laughed since then. I do not want to talk or eat. The thought of having to use my arms to put something in my mouth and open my mouth – I’m not motivated enough. Everything is too exhausting. My head is totally fogged and I feel dizzy. My arms do not do what they should. I keep crying – for no reason. I do not want to go out. I sleep most of the time. At least I have a week off now and I’m home. I could not go to work like that. I should even increase the dose. If it stays that way with the side effects, I’ll stop the medication. Whether it helps against the headache, I can not say so exactly.

    Topamax for A headache

    After having had a bad headache almost daily for about 2 weeks, the doctor prescribed the Topamax for 3 months as a cure. I started with 25 mg, which did not help, only when I increased the dose to 50 mg on the advice of the doctor, the daily headache disappeared. The side effects came slowly. Loss of appetite, diarrhea, nausea and with time more and more fatigue. Could concentrate badly and became more and more forgetful. Has recurrent violent palpitations (with normal blood pressure) and came in the smallest effort (Treppesteigen) in respiratory distress. At night I often woke up because my feet were tingling, my heart was thumping, or I had cold sweats. It got worse every day until I could not get out of bed for the last few days. The morning shower had gone so hard that I had to lie down again. Since I could not muster the strength to cook, I wanted to put at least one pizza in the oven for my children. To bring the pizza from the cellar into the kitchen had triggered tachycardia and breathlessness. Suddenly I realized that I was getting dizzy, the hands and feet began to tingle and became numb, my whole body was vexed. Could just alert the emergency call before I could no longer hold the phone and lie on the kitchen floor with numb arms and legs. Of course, I was panicked and thought, now everything is over. The spasm resolved, however, again after about 10 minutes (with the arrival of the ambulance). I was checked for safety in the hospital, but heart, lungs, everything o.k .. The doctor said it could have been very good the side effects of Topamax and I should leave it out. Do not take it for 2 days anymore and feel like a new person! Today I even cooked and cleaned again, no racing heart any more and my head does not feel as heavy as lead!

    Topamax for Epilepsy

    Weight loss through Topamax 5kg, tingling for the first 6 weeks, nausea, dizziness, lack of coordination, nervousness. After that again about 6 weeks came an aggressive behavior and great mood problems (from high to low) the medi also did not work alone. So we added Zonegran. Zonegran also caused a small weight loss of 3kg, the first 6 weeks of diarrhea, mild dizziness, double vision, poor memory. Now and then I still have occasional diarrhea problems with memory and what has come to muscle pain, muscle wasting and nodules / Knorkel-like growths on middle fingers and feet, which, if you remove them, come back (is only possible through surgery). And hair loss but I fight with biotin and silica. The only positive I can eat what I want and do not gain weight. But my appetite is not always great !!!

    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.
