I have tried to be weaned off of Topiramate and suffered severe migraines. It was horrible. I did a program of a month of gradually trying to get off of it and I was only on a 100 mg of ER at night. So, is there a substitute that can be used that will not cause the memory loss? I find it hard to be a special ed teacher and struggle doing what I do when I can't find the word to help them.
