... vision where he said things looked really small and far away (kind of like looking through a peep hole I am guessing). The doctor doesn't seem worried and it has diminished but he still has a couple of times a day where he has these vision problems. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Also, my second quesiton is that a side effect is that sometimes you cannot sweat and can overheat. Anyone have this trouble? It is winter so we really don't know if he is able to sweat but we cannot continue on this if he can't. The summer humidity and heat alone with cause him to overheat just standing outside. Thanks for any insight
Topamax can cause ocular side effects and I would suggest that you get your son to see a doctor or optometrist. The ocular side effects could be serious.
The primary treatment of cases of secondary angle closure glaucoma cause by topiramate is discontinuation of the drug.
Ocular side effects including cases of secondary angle closure glaucoma characterized by ocular pain, acute myopia, abnormal accommodation, and increased intraocular pressure have been reported. Maculopathy has also been reported.
