    I've taken Topamax for years but recently noticed a changed. I've never had a problem with body odor, but all of a sudden this has become an issue. Mainly vaginal odor, I can stop taking my Topamax and not have a problem with odor but as soon as I start my pills again the problem starts back.

After a week I was told to only take 1 pill at night and see if that would be better, as soon as I tried that I got a really b ... Show Full Comment
