For Onyx re:Topa

you had posted the following in another thread

I just discussed with my doctor that tegretol is sucking the energy out of me. He suggested I switch to topamax. Need some info...will I feel the same or better with the topamax?

Topa works very different than Tegretol. In most cases the Dr has you on other meds at the same time. Not sure what else to say... It inhibits some of the transmitters from the brain is part of how it works to prevent seizures and help with headaches. A side effect is weightloss (can be a struggle).

I'd say SEE if it works for you. In my case it was the first medication in a long time that helped stop my seizures.
