My doctor recently put me on Topamax as an additional mood stabilizer. I have been seeing trails at night and when I wake up in the morning. Has anyone else had this side effect? I have been unable to find any information describing this. Only stating blurred vision as a side effect. Please let me know. Thanks.

Hi Leopardlady14,

Welcome to HealingWell and to the bipolar board.

I think whenever you're having visual side effects you should check with your doc. I did have trails when I was on effexor. They went away after a few days. If you want to wait a couple of days (like 3) and see if it improves, you might do that, but I wouldn't let it go on long.
