    I have had to modify my doses between 100mg and 200 mg at times to keep my migraines under control. There are still days, where I need other medicines to block the start of a migraine, but I am very satisfied, compared to others. // I use this in conjunction with controlling my myoclonic seizures/jerks

    I use topomax in conjunction with another medication as a preventative for my severe migraines. Since I've been on this medication, I no longer take my entire amerge prescription by the end of each month. I can now go several months between refills. I feel topomax has prevented many migraines I would normally have each month.

    I experienced weight loss from Topamax (12 pounds in 6 months, doesn't sound like much but when you go from 114 to 102, it is). I also experienced tingling in my hands and feet, but it was tolerable.

    I recently started taking this med and it has worked wonders for me in a very short time. My pain is very well controlled and I am not having problems with the side effects even though I do notice I get a little dizzy if I move too quickly. Otherwise, I highly recommend this for migraine prevention.
