I was put on topamax today really scared to take it now with all the reviews. I also take geodon 20. Depakote 500mg morning an my amexity meds. What are the side effects to this topamax?
Hi Lovebug73! I have anxiety, major depressive disorder and bi polar 1. I also have frequent migraines which is why my doc prescribed topamax to me. I guess I should say I "had" frequent migraines. Topamax has helped me to be headache free. I take geodon too. Some of the side effects of the med are dizziness, weight loss ( which many doctors prescribe it for) . It is given for seizures as well and may cause seizures in some people. I have been on this med for at least 3 years without any problems of any kind. My doc just reduced my dose from 40 to 20mg daily and I had no problem with reduction in dosage. Hope this info helps you somewhat. All patients may react differently to medications so if you are concerned please talk with your doctor about anything worrying you about it. Wish you luck! Shorty57
So taking geodon with topamax won't hurt any but think I had a allergic reaction to geodon. So stopped that. I just take depakote witch in my mind has been the problem all along. My migraine headaches for 3 months have been after I started depakote so going to wean off that an just take topamax an gabapentin an klonipon. Think that is best for me trying to make drs listen nowdays is like pulling teeth. So have to be my own advocate any body else think I should do this
