Hi, Im new to topamax and started it today I am aware that a common symptom is weight loss. From what I understand the weight loss is caused by lack of appitite so that makes sense of course you would lose weight if you are eating heaps less but a lot of other reviews say that they haven't ...

I was recently prescribed Topamax (the generic, actually) for migraines but I am terrified because even at 25mg twice daily my memory seems affected. Will this go away? Will it get worse?

My dr prescribed me 37.5 phentermine and 25mg of topiramate, instead of the combo pill. Is anybody else on this or was before it became a combo pill? Today was my first day I didn't feel the phentermine at all I guess I just felt different all day.

Hi, I have only been taking Topamax for about 3 weeks (25mg AM and 50mg PM). I haven't even really had many bad side effects either. Some dizziness in the beginning, but not too bad. I also take Forfivo XL, which is basically Welbutrin XL but with 450mg all in one pill. I actually think this ...

Hi! I just started the long wind up dosage of Topamax last night. So far, so good haha! I have read mostly positive reviews from the folks who are using it for weight loss, and mostly negative reviews from the ones who were prescribed the drug for migraines. I see a connection. MY goal has always ...

on March 25th the first couple of days I felt really tired, other than that the only other side effect I have experienced is I cannot drink any carbonated beverage at all anymore. My question is how long does it take for this medicine to come into full effect? Is the generic topiramate any ...

I'm currently on 50mg twice a day and experience intense tingling mostly in my feet several times a day. That is my main side effect other that not wanting to really drink soda and losing weight(no complaints there) and a bit of memory loss. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rid of ...

I guess the more appropriate question would be, for those who've used this drug, how long did it take your bodies to get use to it? It is 9/4 I have been on this only since 9/2 and it makes me very dizzy, confused and tired. I am suppose to take it twice daily (morning & night) but right ...

I have been taking 100 mg of topiramate daily for about a decade I think. I can't remember how long because my memory is terrible but it has been a very long time. About a year ago I had to begin ditropan XL 10 mg daily for my incontinence issue. I had to pee about fifteen times a day and ...

As a migraine sufferer for far too many years, I found that the only relief came with Zomig. However, my GP is now refusing to presribe this and has suggested taking topiramate everyday as a preventative. I have just gone through 3 days of absolute HELL. A sledgehammer would have been the answer if ...
