Re: topamax for depression?

It made me depressed, dumb as a rock, also gave me eye problems (like sharp pain and double vision) and short term memory problems.

There are a mess of side effects associated w/ this drug. I had to be on it for epilepsy (and now I choose to pay for another anti epilepsy med as opposed to getting this for free. it was that damaging to me.). There are a ton of drugs out there for depression with less side effects.

Definitely research this drug before going on it. There are a few sites where you can actually read about people's experiences on Topamax and for what they were on it for. Some are pretty scary.

The pp is correct. This drug has a bad reputation.
