    I had just about every bad side effect you can have taking this med. It has been a horrible experience. I had the numbness severe and the confusion severe and the slurred speech severe.

    I have been on topamax for the last 7 years to help migraines. In the last 5 years I have had one . This is going from 2-3 a month to where I am now. Topamax has saved my live. I actually have a live now. I take 200 mg. a day. The only complaint I have about the drug is the price. For a med. that has been around for as long as topamax, I do not understand why the price is as high as it is!!

    I have been on Topamax for about 4 months, I was on 100mg and I didn't know my name most of the time. Dr lowered my dosage to 25mg and it is really helping so far. I haven't lost any weight at all, am I taking a to low of a dose?

    I was prescribed topamax for migraines and am on a 50 mg a day dose. Side effects I have experienced are tingling fingers and around my mouth, sleeplessness, weightloss,unpleasant taste in my mouth and dizziness. I saw one review that experienced feeling cold all the time and I can add that also, I will say that it has not made me have any of the memory or speech issues I have read about. The curb ...
