I was on 50mg of Topamax 2 times a day for bipolar for about 2 months and I got horrible side effects. Body odor, eczema, folliculitis, a rash on my chest whenever I was hot or showered, yeast infections, my piercings rejected, the list goes on and on. I stopped taking it at the request of my psychiatrist (I was going to tough it out because it made me feel better) because he said these were all very rare side effects but it's been almost 3 weeks and the side effects haven't gone away yet. I'm frustrated and I wanted to know how much longer it will be before this stops because I can't start new medication until the side effects go away.
