Hi remy, I take Topamax 100 mg a day for headaches associated with Mutiple Sclerosis. If they get too bad I take 200 mg a day........
I haven't posted here in so long! I have just started Topamax to try to lose the 45 lbs I have gained from the Seroquel and Lithium. I am titrating slowly, at 50mg right now with hardly any symptoms. I really want this to work. I have noticed my moods improving even more since taking it (no, not manic more!) so at least I benefit there. My worst fear is the cognitive impairment. Although I am saturated with meds, I have never felt better in over 15 years...
Thank you Ellie and Putter. I have 1 month left of school, have made a connection for a job and am loving what i currently do (for confidentiality sakes I will leave that out, wish I could share that tho!) I received a letter in the mail yesterday indicating that the nursing faculty has nominated me for valedvictorian...speechless. To think that one year ago I was such a mess, albeit functioning. I no longer wake up every morning with that black cloud of "how do I feel, whay will today bring" but rather " let's go" Don't miss the drinking, I'm ok with the pills (so expensive tho!) but the fat, argh!
My pdoc indicated that one of of five people will lose weight on Topamax, hoping I can be one! Hey one question for the girls out there-what did your docs tell you about birth control efficacy? My pdoc, the CPS and internet are giving me different versions of the birth control pill and Topamax!
Anyhow, good to hear from you girls, be well, I'll ry to make a point of dropping by more often!
