I was just put on Trokendi XR for chronic migraines, starting at 25mg for a week then up to 50mg for a week, then 75mg for a week, then 100mg until I see my doctor next. I have read that it is the same thing as Topiramate or Topamax expect Trokendi is the extended release. Regarding one of the big side effects being weight loss, I have read many things about people dropping weight super fast. I was wondering if anyone on here has ever taking any of these and had any luck with weight loss as well? Also what were any of your other side effects? I am currently about to move up to the 75mg tomorrow, my side effects that I have right now is the tingling in my hands feet and face, not feeling hungry, and any pop tasting flat and horrible.
