    Topamax for High blood pressure; Migraine

    Since Topamax, the number of migraine attacks has dropped significantly. I have tingling in my arms and legs, sometimes in my face. After a banana go again. Partly I’m very tired, I also lost about 3.5 kg – which I think is not bad. Striking, however, is a quick irritability with me. I did not complain of interactions with the other meds.

    Topamax for Depression; Epilepsy; Migraine

    After the start of taking Topamax it came pretty quickly to the described weight loss – pleasant – but also to disorientation. Can also be related to previous brain surgery. For the treatment of focal epilepsy and migraine, I can only recommend Topamax. Since SAB with Clip Brain Aneurysm, I have depression that is getting stronger and now being treated with amitriptyline. Now, my brain sometimes runs like a DVD player in fast-forward or I fall asleep at the desk, can no longer assign things, I’m just completely confused. 1 and 2 do not seem to be compatible?

    Side effects: Dizziness; Weight loss; Fatigue

    Topamax for Epilepsy

    I started with a 25 mg dose and this was increased to 50 mg after 6 weeks. Shortly thereafter, the first side effects have now reached a strength that is unbearable. In addition to constant tiredness (you can still bear it), I have suffered from severe weight loss (6 kilos lost within 4 weeks and it goes on) and extreme muscle pain on the arms, thighs and back that seriously jeopardize or severely restrict my quality of life , My entire musculoskeletal system is thus reduced to a minimum and move only under the greatest effort and suppression of pain.

    Side effects: Muscle aches; Weight loss; Fatigue

    Topamax for Migraine

    I started in the first week with 25 mg in the evening and went up in the second on noon 25 and evening 25. Headaches have fallen by at least 50 percent so far. However, the side effects are insane. Yesterday, for example I was doing really well during the day, but at night it was really bad. I woke up and everything was so badly tingling, suddenly I hardly noticed any more and almost fainted. I’ve just had a strong tingling in both halves of my face for at least two hours. In addition, I am often depressed and often get wine attacks, I am tired, weakened, unfocused. Consider breaking it often and if it’s worth it. Try to go down a little bit with the dosage, let’s see what happens. It does not look too good with my appetite either. Had initially decreased from 53 to 50 pounds. Within the first week.

    Topamax for Epilepsy

    Have lost within a week 5 kg, that was the nicest side effect! Otherwise, I was with the drug very bad! At first, only this tingling in the toes and in the fingers, but then got depression and anxiety! Could not concentrate anymore, was just tired and I could not manage my household! I was dropped Topamax again and I was again switched to Lamictal, which I took before, again! I would not recommend Topamax to anyone! I am well again with Lamictal! But I also got seizure-free, despite the bad side effect! But I’m free of seizures with Lamictal!

    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 Migraine

    Already on the second day I noticed a tingling in the hands and in both halves of my face. However, that has noticeably reduced and does not occur as often. However, I often feel limp and need more sleep than usual. In addition, I often feel slightly depressed and can concentrate badly. As a result, I often have problems expressing myself correctly. Furthermore, I have very little appetite, I have a feeling of hunger but then I ‘ve no desire to eat something, and after a snack, such as a cookie, the hunger was eaten and that was then a meal. I have now lost 12kg in the 2.5 months. But I’m more thirsty than before and drink a lot of water.

    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.

    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.

    Topamax for Migraine

    The dosage increase at the beginning was difficult, as difficult to divide tablets. Now I take 2 times a day 25 mg that works well, unfortunately you have to keep to 12-hour interval, otherwise occur first side effects such as tingling in hands and feet. I also have mood swings, I’ve become more unstable, had my first kidney stone this week ( AUA !!!) and will probably settle it now. A pity, the migraine is as good as gone. I lost 6 pounds in 3 months, was ok. Loss of appetite is also one of the side effects with me. Unfortunately, word finding disorders and uncertainty in everyday life too.

    Topamax for Migraine

    Severe nausea, loss of appetite and weight loss of about 2-3 pounds of normal weight. Circulatory problems with a little more exercise (e.g., walking to the bus). Ingested starch 2×25 mg per day / taken 25 mg in the morning and 25 mg in the evening. I would have had to increase the dose in order to be able to rely on the success of the prophylactic drug beta-blocker. So I put it off then.

    Side effects: Nausea; Anorexia; Weight loss
