    Topamax for A headache

    I take the Topamax in the evening, starting with 25mg, which I have increased weekly (had 🙂 – up to now 100mg (possibly it could still be increased to a maximum of 400mg per day, but then in 2 cans, tomorrow /Eve). – As it seems, but I will not do that, because with me the drug unfortunately not at all strikes, positive, I mean! How I would like to have at least weight loss as a desired side effect 😉 Otherwise, I suffer increasingly from depressive moods, inner restlessness, difficulty concentrating, headaches, noise and photosensitivity, etc. – Where I must add, I can not say whether it is is actually about side effects or just about the continuation of my 16-year history. In addition, I often think that I’m simply resistant to some meds. My God, what have already pumped everything into me …

    Topamax for A headache; Migraine

    Complete loss of libido, which continues even after discontinuation four months ago. In the last year of taking a strong headache and reinforcing my migraine attacks in duration and frequency. Then the Topamax (anti-epileptic, also migraine prophylaxis)) did not strike at all – almost nine months I took it for nothing, because the hormones have neutralized the effect. After discontinuing Valette, the condition normalizes slowly, but I am still far from being healthy. I also had a red stroke (cerebral hemorrhage) at the age of 41. I think 27 years of taking hormones were probably not the true thing … The side effect can be quite deadly.

    Side effects: Libido loss; Headache

    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.
