It took my body a while to adjust to it, I had the usuall side effects. Now a month into treatment I don't feel the side effects so much and went from having 3 migraines a month to none. My pain was no longer able to be managed. I was ready to give up. This medicine has been a miracle in my life.

It took about a month and a half for the Topamax to fully kick in, the side affects hit me hard, but i was not half as bad as all my migraines. I would recomend trying this medication.
