Re: migraine = Topamax!?? Anyone on It/Been On It!????
I was on Topamax for 3 months. Unfortunately, the side effects were too much for me and I had to stop. However, I've heard that Topamax works well for some people. My side effects were: headaches, neck pain, difficulty thinking, speaking, and spelling, increased thirst, numbness in my feet, ringing in my ears, and loss of appetite. Its important to note that you need to be on Topamax (or any prophylactic med) for 4-6 weeks before it will start working for migraine prevention. Also, the side effects of Topamax go away for some people but not all.
