I'm currently on 50mg twice a day and experience intense tingling mostly in my feet several times a day. That is my main side effect other that not wanting to really drink soda and losing weight(no complaints there) and a bit of memory loss. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rid of that side effect? It feels like my feet are falling asleep and my hands and feet go kind of cold.
these are all side effects associated with this medication, such as tingling in feet or hands, tiredness, loss of appetiate, chills, constant need to urinate, nausea etc... in my opinion don't no how long u have been on this med, but if if comes to be to much for u to deal/tolerate, I would speak with your pcp or whoever is prescribing this med to you to see what they suggest normally after a while of taking certain meds the body adjusts to the med and the symtoms vanish... good luck... angel 1662
Having been on Topamax on/off for about fifteen years – I'm up to 300 mg/day now and that tingling is fierce – the one way that I've found to lessen the effect is to raise my legs for a while (for example, lay on the couch and put your legs on the top/back of the couch); lessening the fluid pressure in the feet seems to relax the tingling.
I don't expect the original poster to see this after five years, but maybe the next searcher can get some help from the suggestion!
