... instructed by a psychiatrist in my neurologist's office to skip two doses of Topiramate. I had experienced blurred vision, pain around the eyes and dizziness for about three days before calling and only waited to call because I completely forgot that Topiramate may affect one's vision. It is about two hours after the time I normally take my morning dosage (the second one skipped) and I am experiencing moderate nausea and I keep thinking I feel my heart speed up. I do not want to take it until tonight (as instructed, and I will be taking it a little earlier than usual) but I want to make sure neither of these symptoms are dangerous. Does anyone know anything about Topiramate withdrawal? The doctor told me not to worry about the risk of seizures but can it be dangerous otherwise?
