Hey Junior, what's up? Your answer is yes. Many drugs used in treatment of things like axiety disorder,depression,drug addiction and even people with seizure disorder.The researchers,scientists in pharmacology have found that several meds in use of seizure disorders has also worked in treatment of bipolar and forms of depression. That does not mean you have this problem itis just the fact that many drugs developed out there are discovered by accident and some developed to help treat certain disorders or conditions actually are also effective in treating manyother conditions. Topomax sometimes is gradually increased in dosage if it is working, it will be leveled off when your doc feels you are stable. Most people start out at 25mg and take 3x a day but for you it may be less or more.
People with seizure disorder for example will take a higher dose.Getting Down to what really matters: I WOULD ask the doc if he thinks I am borderline bipolar or is he using it in treatment of another problem as well. Topomax can have some side effects in people, such as, tiredness, dizzyness or a times a little funky until you get use to it. I am not an expert with this condition but if it works, then what the hell, if your side effects are not that bad go for it. Remember there are other meds out there for treatment of your problem,just communicate with your doc. IF you are experiencing other problems as well that may explain your trial on topomax. I was on it for another reason and did not like the side effects but also did not give it much time to get use to. Later junior, If you want to talk more put another question out there. Going to work out,good luck.
