Never had seizures in my life. Now I am having about 3 a day. Been on topamax since 2011 the seizures started in 2013. My dosage was 400mg a day for migraines.
WoW, I am very sorry to hear of this. Hope you can get things under control. I began taking Topomax 6 mos ago as a weight control medication, obviously under medical supervision. I began at a lower dose but am now at 200 mg per day. It's terrifying to think that an an anti-seizure med could cause them. On the other hand, I'm also afraid of the risk of seizures in titrating down to go off of it.
Do you mind if ask... assuming you have no family history of epilepsy, what has your MD had to say about this development? I am praying you get the support you need. I will add you as a friend.
