    Topamax for Migraine

    For me, the drug has extreme side effects. So I noticed: (looked at wikipedia) very strong: extremely strong fatigue !!! increased irritability !!! Depression !!! Concentration disorders !!! Disturbed memory capability !!! the feeling that you can no longer learn what you have learned Sleep disorders !!! weak: eating disorders It is not clear if everything came only through the drug, but I suffer from severe depression. It was discontinued over a year ago. Positive effect: (had frequent strong Mirgäne with strong aura … blurred vision … tingling / paralysis etc …) no more migraine attacks since taking the drug and not even after stopping !!! Conclusion: Despite the positive effect of masking migraine, I would advise against any of this drug because of the side effects (which may have left me with significant lasting harm in the form of depression).

    Topamax for Epilepsy

    My older daughter, 17 years old, has been on Topamax for 2 years, previously on Phenhydan for 14 years (previously on Luminal). The initial target dose of Topamax for my daughter was 125 mg (50 – 0 – 75), after about 2 months we had to increase to 150 mg, then about 175 mg again about a year ago. Until then, she tolerated the Topamax quite well, minor side effects such as uncontrollable laughing fits, occasional muscle tremors, a slight ataxia, and mild sleep disorders but there were already. But she was as good as seizure free. Almost 2 months ago we had to increase again to 200 mg per day (100 – 0 – 100) because the epileptic seizures started to increase again after gaining size and weight. And shortly after this increase began the difficulties: My daughter suddenly suffers from very strong restlessness (completely uncontrollable fidgeting in a wheelchair, while strong loud), massive sleep and drowsiness (up to 3 hours awake at night), besides, it has from now on massive screaming attacks, sometimes not calming for up to an hour, and also extreme mood swings: in one minute she still laughs, in the next minute she screams for no apparent reason. Of course, we do not want to have any seizure freedom at this price, so that we can reduce the Topamax immediately, and then, if necessary, creep in another drug.

    Topamax for Epilepsy

    Starting with the medication, when I was twelve years old and had two seizures, you diagnosed epilepsy. When stopping the medication, I often had sweats, sleep problems and had trouble concentrating. At the time I was feeling very bad – but at the time I was a bit mule and so I lost a few kilos – but could also be related to a change in diet. Now I start to crawl the drug, take only 50 mg in the evening and drive quite well with it.

    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.
