... reaction to overdosing on this drug? The reason I took it was because I couldn't bear the pain I was in..Now it's 100 x's worse... Please if anyone can help me with this, it would be so appreciated.
If you happen to overdose on Topamax, SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.
Topamax overdose symptoms may include:
Low blood pressure (hypotension)
Abdominal pain (or stomach pain)
This may cause signs or symptoms that include:
Treatment for a Topamax overdose will vary. If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may give certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach." Treatment also involves supportive care. This type of care consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. For example, supportive treatment options may include:
Fluids through an intravenous line (IV)
Medications to prevent or treat seizures
Other treatments based on complications that occur.
Once again It is important that you SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY
I think you're having worse pain now because (if it works like Imitrex) the blood vessels may still be restricted or expanded. I forgot what exactly it does with the vessels. How long ago did you overdose on this medication? If you aren't feeling well, please get to a doctor soon!! I found this info for you. Is it safe to assume you use it to prevent migraines?
. Topamax is also used to prevent migraine headaches. Topiramate will only prevent migraine headaches or reduce the number of attacks. It will not treat a headache that has already begun.
I hope you seek medical attention soon. My very best wishes,
