    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 Migraine

    I had migraine almost every day when I came to my neurologist, Natil N had not worked, so now he wanted to try topiramate. It got a little better, but these side effects, uhlala. Tingling in the hands, on the face and feet, dizziness – I can live with that. Often I feel so damned dejected and funny and I just do not know why and most of all I feel really stupid. I also forget a lot, can NOT remember anything. I know, for example sometimes no longer what I did yesterday and must first consider and think about 10 minutes … that is blatant and was not so before. As if the pills would just make you stupid, so you just forget the migraine and no more pain. It happens to me that stupid things, that’s incredible … And of course you’re tired, but I can live with it, even if I feel very depressed and often just do not feel like anything. I’m just bothered by the funny feeling, as if I’m really on a trip, or something, I do not know …. And sometimes I just get so sad and start howling. And mineral water tastes no longer the way it tasted, from today to tomorrow it tasted different. I’ve always been a water-drinker … now it’s no longer 🙁 It tastes of metal, or I do not know … Sweet sometimes … somehow, just bad, but it’s not that bad either, just like that a minor matter 😀 Unfortunately I had now the last three days Migraeneanfaelle although I take morning and evening tablets (25mg in the morning and 100mg in the evening) For the Anfaelle I take Maxalt I do not know if I should continue now with the ingestion or whether I I just do not want migraines anymore 😉 Sure, the migraine has become less, which I’m very happy about … but mhhh, these side effects … – & gt; Zwick mill. So: strong side effects and still migraines. Wish you good luck!

    Topamax for Epilepsy; Migraine

    About 30 years ago I had my first migraine attacks; originally it was unilateral severe pain in the right temple, combined with nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound. The complaints have changed over the years, so I \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Sehstöhrungen and headache had to fight. In the past, however, the complaints only once a month, so I could be happy if it lasted for a seizure a day … End of December last year, then an epileptic seizure was added to me by Notartzt led to the hospital. Since then I take Topamax. I am very very divided. I had actually given up the hope to find something against the migraine attacks. The first 4 weeks since I took Topamax I had the feeling that the Sehstöhrungen still lurking in the background \ can not break through; mitlerweile but also that is gone. Sehstöhrungen / Auren I have since had no more; not for the first time in 20 years !! But there are mitlerweile a whole bunch of other z.T. serious side effects: tingling in the hands + feet, loss of appetite, listlessness, fatigue, suicidal thoughts (!), memory lapses; I take at the time in the morning + in the evening 50 mg each; I wish you success!
