Back Problems board

[FONT="Tahoma"]I take Topamax for my sciatic nerve pain that runs down my left leg. I personally feel it works much better than other RX drugs I've tried in the past. I tried Neurontin and Lyrica before my doctor recommended Topamax.
The side effects are - Brain Fog...I experienced this for about the first 3-4 weeks I was taking Topamax, after that I noticed a big decrease in the brain fog. Drowsiness...I take it at bedtime b/c there is absolutely no way I could take it during the day and attempt to function. Weight Loss...Everyone is different, but Topamax completely kills my appetite. Most days I have to remind myself to eat.

I hope this helps.
