I have been on Topamax for 10 years w/no side effects. It took me a few weeks to get used to it. I take 600 mg daily. I cannot take the generic tho, caused more seizures for me. I too have thyroid condition for which I take Synthroid. I also take antidepressant. Topamax can cause weight loss and kidney stones so drink lots of liquids. I never lost weight with it tho. Good luck to you and blessings.
