Comment:
I had been taking topamax for the past 8 years. I learned to tolerate the side effects because my migraine symptoms were no longer. I was introduced to TrokendiXr from my physician and.... I feel like I hit the lottery! I now can function as if I don't need to take medication, I can easily speak to someone without stumbling on my words and I no longer have dizzy balance issues I once had on ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
After only two months of taking Topamax, I ended up in the emergency room several times. I had a nervous break with hallucinations . It has now been 5 years since I last took Topamax.

I have a hard time holding ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was given this by my chronic pain doctor and neurologist. It works well, but I cannot get used to the taste and feel of food in my mouth. I have lost quite a bit of weight, which I needed to do since I am diabetic, but this drug is NOT worth it. I'm turning into the doddering grandma, I can't remember things, and am very often confused. I cannot sleep through a whole night. Up and down, ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been taking Topamax for exactly four years now for migraine prevention. Had tried all the other drugs over the prior 15 years with no help from any. And Depakote made me gain over 30 lbs. in 3 months while not helping the migraines! Had migraines since my teens, but getting worse and worse as I aged, until I was having 3-4 a week. Between an annual Radio Frequency Lesioning procedure on my ... Show Full Comment
