I too have chronic daily headaches, migraines and severe neck and shoulder muscle spasms. I have just today received a script for Topamax. The side effects I was told about was possible kidney stones (but it suppossedly make you thirsty so you should drink alot of water to prevent the stones), tingling in the lips and fingertips and weight-loss...YEAH!!!! Prozac put about 25lbs on me over the last couple years. Also the neuro told me sodas would taste bad. He said you gradually work up to a certain mgms over the course of a month, and the any yucky side effects should eventually go away as the body grows accustom to the RX. I would also be interested in any other side effects from other Topamax users and whether it works for headaches.
