I don't seem to have any interest in anything anymore. I feel flat. I can barely be bothered getting out of bed. I can't focus of tv let alone read a book.
Jayne, you still have room that you could increase your topiramate dose but has your doctor ever mentioned prescribing an add-on antipsychotic like Abilify or Rexulti which would act on it's own but also booster the effects of your current medication? They are frequently prescribed with anti-convulsants or lithium, the mood stabilizer, because of their effectiveness.
The alternative would be looking into the possibility of switching you to something like Lamictal or the aforementioned mood stabilizer, lithium.
Hope you get some relief soonest! WC
