Reason: Tourette's Syndrome (Tic Disorder) Date: 19 May 2009
Side Effects
I searched this site because I was looking for why I had tingling in my face today. I had a lot of caffeine. That must be why. I am up to 75 mg at bedtime. This is my highest dose. I haven't seen an improvement in my tics yet, but appetite is slower, have been very tired some days, others I have been ok. A little dizzy and forgetful but I am also on Lexapro so they are mixing together to create side effects

Additional Thoughts
Topamax has a very cheap generic now, topiramate, as a pharmacist, i highly recommend you switch if you have not already, i use the generic and it has the same benefits.

Side Effects
shakiness in hands, slurred speech, problems searching for correct words, tiredness, anxiety, forgetfulness

Additional Thoughts
The good thing is Topamax took my migraines from 10 - 15 a month down to 1 - 2 a month...a real blessing. I also lost 40# but unfortunately that not hungry feeling doesn't last for ever, you eventually start gaining it back.

Reason: migraine Date: 8 February 2008
Side Effects
I had a continuous migraine for almost 2 mos. With 75mg extreme dizziness, crying, sleeing all the time, slurred speach, burning sensation in mouth, skin felt creepy. I was told to wean off myself off.

Additional Thoughts
When I got to 25 mg once a day all side effects ended and I have not had a migraine. I am back to my old self. No weight loss unfortunately.
