    Topamax for Migraine

    Suffering from migraine for over 25 years. 5-6 seizures a month. After many unsuccessful attempts with acupuncture and various medications I have been trying for 15 months with Topamax migraine. Starting with 25mg, increased up to 75mg. The seizures have reduced to about 1 attack per month and I get the handle with Allegro or Ibuprofen well. However, the side effects are quite large: in the beginning very strong tingling in the fingers and feet, which is not so common anymore. Weight loss, taste impairment, concentration disorders and fatigue. In the last weeks forgetfulness and hair loss came to it. Despite all the side effects, it has improved my quality of life.

    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

    I started with 25 mg and slowly increased over 50 mg and 75 mg. The usual side effects, such as tingling, depression, acne I have also received. Weight loss unfortunately only 3 kg. Recently I have hair loss and not a little. I also have some problems with acne. Tingling and depression have become very rare. But the most important thing is that instead of having migraine once a week, I have a migraine at most once a month. Sometimes I just need a normal pain medication. And that is a success for me. However, I am afraid of any long-term consequences, if one must take this drug for so long or possibly permanently.
