I have heard of people being put on Topamax for pinched nerve pain and was wondering if anyone has had luck with that. I have been placed on similar medicines for pain relating to Fibromyalgia, but the weight loss factor of Topamax seems like a benefit the other medications do not have.
I tried Topamax for Fibromyalgia and nerve pain. I had severe side effects, including the dreaded weight loss, among other things. Had to discontinue it due to the side effects. I also developed hives and lost my vocabular to some extent! Odd, I know, but tis a side effect.
