I started on this medication about 8 months ago. At first it was great in preventing my headaches. Still had a few but not as bad as usual. I had every side effect listed. Starting with tingling hands/feet. I felt like my eyes were playing tricks on me. I was always seeing streaking lights or spots. I became very thirsty all the time and nothing tasted good but water. I have lost nearly 22 ...

DO NOT GO ON THIS MEDICATION, I was prescribed this medication for migraines and it has completely ruined my life. When I was on topiramate my arms and legs would go numb and I could not move them, I started to halucinate and have all kinds of mental problems. I also stopped being able to get an erection and lost all sexual feelings what so ever, including acheiving an orgasm. I also developed ...

I was told when I left Barrow neurological. That I needed to be on this due to a Severe Traumatic Brain Injury. First I was on 50 BID. I had several complex partial seizures. Then I got up to 300 mg a day. I still had seizures. I stopped taking this med. 4 months ago. Now I’m aware of what Is going on in my life. It’s like the past 10 years we’re just a dream. I have emotions again. The hairdresser just noticed a small balled spot on my head. I’m not sure if it’s connected.

Controls seizures, but with a very high cost. A major decrease in the quality of life. Serious depression, lethargy, could not speak or find words so I eventually lost my career. Numb, tingling in feet and hands, hair loss, tooth pain. Also, this is exorbitantly expensive for such a toxic medication.The brand name pharmaceutical company refuses to assist with discounts. This medication gave me anemia, permanently.

I have suffered from migraines since I was a child; this medication was a godsend. Yes, I suffered from a few side-effects like occasional numbs and tingling in my hands and feet, but the migration free days made it all worth it.

I have had debilitating migraines for about two years. My doctor prescribed Topiramate to help prevent them. It did, for about two weeks. Then I believe it lessened the pain when I did get them. Now, it does nothing, except give me numbness in my hands, difficulty sleeping and failure to annunciate words. Almost nobody can understand me when I speak, at times. I actually believe it has made my migraines more intense, longer duration and more frequent. I'm glad to see some people have had success. I have quit taking it.
