I just started taking Topamax a week ago today, and have already seen a tremendous difference in how I feel. But today I started "two a day" dosage and my fingers and face are very numb. Is this normal? I would call and ask my doctor, but last week after the first day of taking the medication I had the worst migraine I had ever gotten while at work and the dr never returned my call, and still hasn't. So please any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Did your migraine stay as long as usual? I take Topamax for migraines & since I've been on it, I've only had a few migraines. I hope yours went away fast. As for the numbness & tingling - if it is real bothersome call your Pharmacist or last for 8 hrs CALL YOUR DOCTOR. If he doesn't call back after you leave an emergency message go to the hospital & take the pills with you.
