Good Afternoon Everyone,
I am 26 years old and have been suffering from migraines my whole life. I usually use oneset medications such as: Zomig, Maxalt, Maxalt-MLT, Replax. As of 1 week ago I was started on Topamax and have been having some interesting side effects. I seem to have memory loss, loss of words, forgetful, trouble with word retrieval, tingling in my hands, etc. I am also only on the starting dose, I am titrating it every week to increase. Usually on the weekends I will have a few drinks casually while singing Kareoke, well this weekend I went up to sing and I could not even read/sing a song I sing almost every weekend. It was very embarassing and confusing!! Topamax has helped me so far as far as my migraines, but is it really worth it for the side effects?
I am just wondering if other people are having these side effects.
Thank you for your input
