I've read on the side effects that agitation is a possible side effect - I've only been taking topamax for a week now. I'm currently at 25 mg twice a day... I will be building up to eventually be at 100 mg twice a day... will this side effect go away? Food & smells have been really off too... will this adjust this itself out? The agitation & irritability though has been slightly intense the last 2 days so I'm really hoping this will balance out. I want real experience please not someone posting side effects to the medicine as I've read those already. Thanks. - oh yea - been prescribed this to help prevent seizures
