Been on Topamax for about a month now up to 75 mg a day. Have been doing pretty good. Only 1 migraine. My mood has improved considerably. No noticible memory loss, some weight loss (yeah). What I am experiencing is jaw pain or tenseness, don't know really how to explain it. Anyone else have this side effect?

you have got nothing to worrie about these side effects will soon go, has i myself have been on these for a good for years now and on a high dose of them, at first i didn't like the side effects but they soon go and you will feel ok
i had the side effects to for along time and my dr told me its only unly the tablets get into your bloods and he was right.
best of luck...
The tenseness is minor and should pass real soon. I experienced the same thing when I first started taking it. It also happened when I had an increase in dosage, but it only lasted a couple days. If it continues to be bothersome, notify your doctor right away. Good luck!
