My psychiatrist has recommended Topamax for me to treat PTSD, anxiety and depression, the feeling is that maybe my diagnosis might be wrong and it could be closer to a bipolar disorder. I have had problems with sexual side effects from meds previously and was wondering if anyone has any real life experience with Topamax and sexual side effects?
Topamax sexual side effects?

Topamax is actually an anticonvulsant medication that also acts as a mood stabilizer and has a very low incidence of sexual side effects unlike the antidepressants:
"Uncommon (0.1% to 1% of users): Erectile dysfunction, sexual dysfunction"
I'm a woman so I had no problem with ED obviously but I also had no decrease in libido or ability to orgasm.
Hope this helps.
