    Topamax for Migraine

    To Topamax I can say that I had a lot of NW weight loss, loss of taste and carbonation was as stale, mucous membranes in the mouth, throat and nose swollen, tingling in the hands and feet and finally lump in the throat (Globussyndrom). That was terrible almost as if you had a capsule across the neck and you always run around with something to drink or something must suck, because you have to swallow constantly. Higher than 50mg I did not have a day, have been with migraine for 30 years and the Topamax also helped GOOD, but everything else has made my life difficult. After discontinuing the Topamax, I had then increased more than by taking off. All NW have subsided after settling again. Carmen

    Topamax for Migraine

    After taking the medis, I became tired and sleepy. But worst of all were the burning legs. As soon as you lie down, the thighs begin to burn so you do not need to lie down anymore. The taste changes have been clearly shown. I have not taken the medi for a week now and the taste changes are still there.

    Topamax for Migraine

    I was given this drug yesterday by my doctor without any previous examination. The only side effect she called me fatigue, so she advised me to take in the evening, which I then did with plenty of mineral water. When I got up after about 1 1/2 hours and wanted to go to the kitchen, I had to hold on everywhere, so dizzy was me what I had not noticed before lying down. There was also a tingling sensation on my hands, in my arms, in my mouth, and I had no taste left – the malt beer I ate after that tasted like nothing. In addition, I had an enormous pressure on the ears, I hardly slept, I was more panicked. I still have these symptoms this morning (it is now shortly after 11am) – a bit weaker – but they are all still there, so I’m really thinking about dropping a pill like this tonight.
