My dr just prescribed kolonopin, I normally take Xanax for my panic disorder but I've been getting them daily so were trying something to prevent them, but I read kolonopin is also used for seizures , a year ago my doc gave me topamax to try to stop my severe migraines, both times I tried it I had severe side effects to where I had to go to hospital because my head hurt so bad I was in so much pain , I felt like my brain was going to explode, and severe vomiting, so will kolonopin give me same side effects as topamax?
I've tried all of these medications for everything your talking about as for topamaz I used it to prevent my migraines but, a low dose and also had medication to get rid of migraines like maxalt, imatrex, Fioricet I've tried that one with and without codeine either way works for me really good. OK let's move on for anixiety and panic disorders I've tried the Kolopin and Xanax the Kolopin takes awhile to start taking effect on me they also make me drowsy all day I've been taking Xanax for a while now and I guess I'm used to them they help me better all day and I can still function with them. Hope this helps you.
Klonopin is a longer lasting benzo then Xanax and topamax is used for migraines, weight loss. My sister took both of these for years, two totally different meds. I suspect you need something for the treatment once the migraine begins. Topamax is used as a preventive measure, but honestly it don't seem to help much in that area. She took furocet and/or stadol nasal spray once the migraine began.
