I used to be on Topamax and that was the first drug to have ever worked and kept me seizure free for a year! The problem with topamax was that my quality of life started to decline and I couldn't focus in school or retain new information as well. I had no choice but to take myself off. Another concern about topamax was that it is fairly new and I didn't know of any previous research regarding successful pregnancy while taking that drug so I had a few good reasons to be taken off. I am happy it is working for you and please keep me informed on your pregnancy.
Kim, you did what I ultamately would do if I couldn't find any drugs that has been tested on during pregnancy and worked for controlling seizures. I can't just stop completely, I would need to get tappered off though.
I have heard the same thing that you have about how seizures stop after pregnancy, I have been told by 5 people that they have become seizure free! So, I look forward to that day but will not put myself in that situation until of course, I am ready to have a child. Please keep me updated with your success and I wish you the best of luck with your pregnancy...
Thank you both for replying to my board.
