Headaches,Topomax and the depo shot

Hi,
I am brand new so please bare with me...
I suffer from headaches, migraines and chronic pain. I have been taking topomax for about 2 years. I got a depo shot for birth control about 2 months ago and seem to have had a severe reaction. I was crying for no reason and very emotional. I was wondering if this is normal and also if anyone knows of a different medication I can talk to my Dr. about taking. I want off topomax anyway and I am not going to do the shot again I am going to do pills. I just don't want to have that happen again. I have been feeling much better the last two weeks and not as emotional.
Any suggestions would be so helpful!!!
Thanks so much!!

My first suggestion is don't ever take the Depo shot again! I didn't do any research until I started having side effects. Then I found a lot of dfferent web sites with woman that have been traumatized by Depo! I took seasonale for years without taking the placebo (so no periods, ever!!). It was nice. But I too was on Topamax for headaches. Not until I made the leap to no birth control drugs, did my headaches virtually disappear. This is after 20 years of ER visits on a regular basis. I still take a low dose of Topamax for now, but I am tapering off. I strongly recommend you find a doctor that believes in treating the whole person with both natural and conventional medicine. Best of luck to you!

Oh I'm not doing depo again. I already have my pills. The crying for no reason was so hard to deal with for two reasons brought on headaches and didn't know how to explain why at first.
Thanks so much for your time and advise!!!
