I started taking topamax on 10/11/12. 25mg at night for the 1st week then 2 tabs thereafter. (For severe headaches) After the 1st couple days I noticed my hands would go numb and tingle. My Dr said to continue taking it and it should go away. Now its even more severe, my hands stay numb and tingle for the most part of the day & night to the point where I can barely hold anything for even a min or use them at all. My headaches have subsided for the most part. But is this side effect normal or had anyone else experienced it?? Please help! My hands and arm hurt so bad from the numbness! But my Dr says to keep taking it. Any suggestions or words of wisdom please??
