:bouncing: I have been on Topamax for 18 months for severe, chronic migraine. I have had migraines since I was 14 years old and have tried EVERY therapy known to medicine. As a health care worker, I have access to lots of information and have always been willing to try any new drug that came along. After a "mini stroke" from too much Imitrex my neurologist started me on Topamax in addition to my Beta blocker, SSRI and asaprin therapy. I have had a few side effects, tingling in extermities, difficulties recalling names but my headaches are fewer and less severe. Ulike most patients, I actually gained weight when I started Topamax. I believe this is because of the positive effect it has had on my lifestyle and the lack of migraine related vomitting : :bouncing: !!!
